Climate Change Effects on Salmon, Studies and Selected Salmon Restoration Projects, Fourth Post


This fourth post will build links to articles on climate change effects on wild salmon. So check back from time to time, and go read/view the posts here, for example, Patagonia's movie Artifishal, item 2, third post. It is one hour 20 minutes. More coming.

Here is the link to the first post in this series, 200 articles: https://fishfarmnews.blogspot.com/2019/10/ckunate-change-effects-on-salmon.html
Here is the link to the second post in this series, 200 articles: https://fishfarmnews.blogspot.com/2019/10/ckunate-change-effects-on-salmon.html.

Here is the link to the third post in this series, 500 articles: https://fishfarmnews.blogspot.com/2021/01/climate-change-effects-on-salmon-and.html.

I will also write an article on what to do with salmon to adapt to climate change. Go take a look at Peltier Tiles, as they look to me to have lots of application, including electricity generation, cooling water, pumping water up stream and so on.

Peltier Tiles:  https://www.bing.com/search?q=Peltier+Tiles&pc=MOZD&form=MOZLBR. Browse the articles here to gain an understanding of these adaptable items.

And go back to read 200 articles on climate change and salmon here: https:/fishfarmnews.blogspot.com/2019/10/ckunate-change-effects-on-salmon.html.

And here is the new, fourth post, starting at item 901, which is to say, add the number from an article to 900 and you arrive at the correct number for a total:

Tasmania Is Fully Against the Fish Barons and Governments that Don't Listen to Citizens

Today in the Mercury Talking Point:

Parliamentary report into fish farming industry can’t be ignored

Recommendations from a Legislative Council report on fin fish farming in Tasmania leaves salmon companies no where to hide, writes Peter George

A TURNING point in the debate about the future of Tasmania’s farmed salmon was reached about a week ago with the tabling of a parliamentary report into the industry.

Its 194 findings and 68 recommendations leave the salmon barons nowhere to hide.

They draw a stark picture of an industry out of the control of its regulator, an industry that gets what it wants even before the essential research is complete and an industry so arrogant that social licence is a meaningless concept to the salmon barons who control it. The report makes for appalling reading amounting to a litany of damning evidence that industry, government and regulator are locked in an embrace that pursues the industry’s interests over those of Tasmanians.

Couched in the dense language of a parliamentary report, it marks the first time that conclusive evidence and soaring community concern have been heeded and addressed.
Full credit to the independent members of the Legislative Council. It takes courage to speak truth to powerful entrenched interests, especially industrydominating Huon Aquaculture owned by the $50bn Brazilian multinational, JBS, with its track record of corruption, bullying and bribery. Core to the report is a halt to any form of expansion of the industry without a complete revision of the overarching “growth plan” to include genuine stakeholder consultation; environmental, social and recreational values; and transparent, evidencebased decision-making.

On that recommendation alone industry and government fail.

Perhaps more significant is recommendation 3: priority is given to stopping all salmon farming in inshore, sensitive, sheltered and biodiverse waterways.

That means an end to fish pens in – at least – Macquarie Harbour, the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, the Huon River and estuary, the Tamar River and Long Bay, right next door to World Heritage-listed Port Arthur.

If this important recommendation were adopted it would spell an end in its current form to the salmon industry along with an end to its coastal depredations, its cruelty to and destruction of marine life and the slow asphyxiation of its own livestock in rapidly warming waters.

No wonder the salmon barons are demanding access to the last of the state’s coastlines still free of open-net salmon cages. By clamouring to expand into Bass Strait, the industry implicitly acknowledges warming waters make its in-shore operations increasingly unsustainable.

Now the MLCs are saying it does not even have justification to be there.

In almost embarrassing detail the report eviscerates the whole edifice that supports the industry: lack of real science underlying decisionmaking; opaque processes allowing the industry to do what it wants; failure of fresh water quality management for salmon hatcheries; the regulator’s lack of resources; failure to produce just returns to the community for the use of public waters; failure to properly penalise industry violations; risible fines for littering foreshores and waterways with marine debris; and even the failure to set proper limits for the amount of filth and faeces salmon cages are allowed to spew into public waters.

A disappointment is the MLCs’ failure to investigate obvious alternatives to opennet fish farming, just as last month’s so-called Salmon Symposium also ignored the blindingly obvious. Landbased salmon production in closed-loop facilities would be economically attractive if the salmon barons were paying their way for the use of our waters, for the impact on environment and community, for the cost of regulation, monitoring and policing, for the mistreatment of livestock and for their huge carbon emissions.

The Federal elections have revealed what happens to governments and politicians who fail to heed the electorate.

Tasmania will not long remain immune to the mood that generated the so-called “teals”.

In an expanded parliament, the major parties will need to cock an ear to what increasing numbers of Tasmanians want – not to what the salmon barons demand.

Bad News Bites - 17th Post


I receive 30 global press fish farm/seafood industry newsletters every week. In these, I have found a startling amount of bad news, and decided to do a post on it. I had no idea there was as much bad news as there is. This is my 17th post. And the last post ended at 7,000 problems, as I put 500 in each post before starting a new one.


Some days I am stunned by the amount of bad news in the fish farm/seafood industry.  Find the fifth BAD NEWS BITES post here: http://fishfarmnews.blogspot.ca/2017/05/bad-news-bites-fifth-post.html. And that reaches 2,000.

Here is a summary of the bad news stories:

"In one mouthful, here are the kind of stories I am finding: boom bust industry, billions made and lost, crisis in lice and disease, bankruptcy, workers fired, executives jumping company to company, dividing big bonuses, fraud, corruption, litigation, conflict of interest with government and scientists, using the ocean as a free open sewer – $10.4 Billion in BC alone, killing of whales, seals and sea lions – more than 12,000 in BC so far, slavery, unpaid labour, taxpayers paying millions for diseased, dead fish – $177 Million in Canada, dueling scientists, weakening of laws, unsustainable feed, illegal fishing, jail sentences, disasters in Norway, Scotland, Chile, Canada, bullying of scientists, governments and anyone critical of their business, cartels, collusion, price fixing, fishing down the food chain to Antarctic krill, carcinogens and persistent organic pollutants, fluoroquinolones, chicken feathers in feed, animal feces in feed, eutrophication in a time of global warming, Malachite Green fungicide in Chilean seafood, fake industry awards, all the wild salmon in the Pacific ocean, more than a billion, put in peril... it goes on."


Updates:

Dec 11, 2017
: I found 500 BAD NEWS BITES in less than 3.5 months. That means well over 1000 in a year. That is how much bad news there is in fish farms/seafood industry. This post, the sixth, may be found here: http://fishfarmnews.blogspot.ca/2017/08/bad-news-bites-salmonseafood-industry.html.

Dec 9, 2020, my 15th post, moved to 6,500 problems:

And, now that I have reached 500 more BAD NEWS BITES, and reached the huge total of 7,000 bad news bites with the fish farm/seafood industry, it is time to start a new post, and move on to 7,500 problems:

55. Proof of Dangerous Disease - Tenacibaculum maritimum in DI farms, kills wild salmon. See paper: "Atlantic salmon farms are a likely source of Tenacibaculum maritimum infection in migratory Fraser River sockeye salmon: Vancouver, B.C. — New PSF research indicates that Fraser sockeye were much more likely to harbour the bacterial pathogen Tenacibaculum maritimum when swimming past Discovery Island salmon farms than at other points along the migratory route of these iconic fish. These findings align with past evidence that open-net Atlantic salmon farms off the coast of British Columbia are growing and amplifying pathogens that can harm wild Pacific salmon. In particular, this study provides new evidence that Tenacibaculum is transmitted to juvenile wild sockeye salmon. The study was peer reviewed and published in Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, Canada’s leading fisheries science journal." This is a study that had the PSF as part of it.

Just How Many Tonnes of Salmon Does Grieg Produce - Or Says it Produces?


Read: https://www.fishfarmingexpert.com/article/grieg-aims-for-35000-gwt-in-british-columbia-by-2025/?utm_source=netflex&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter__31_03_2022.

The problem with fish farms is they say one thing while the reality is something else.

But here is what they say, April 1, 2022 (yes, April Fools Day):

A harvest of 35,000 gwt is more than double the 14,448 gwt that Grieg Seafood BC harvested last year, and more than 50% above the 21,181 gwt harvested in 2020. Grieg’s harvest volumes vary significantly every other year in BC due to local production region arrangements and larger farms with greater capacity on the west coast of Vancouver Island compared to the east coast.

Overall, Grieg aims to increase production volume from 89,327 gwt last year to 130,000 gwt in 2025, with increases from its Rogaland and Finnmark divisions on Norway and 15,000 tonnes from Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, Atlantic Canada. Grieg has eight seawater licences for the bay and has built a hatchery in Marystown, NL. The first fish are due to be stocked in pens this year.

They don't say how much the people from NL and BC want them out of the water.

I'll follow these figures as Grieg has had lots of difficulty over the decades of doing what it says it will do, and is the poor brother compared with Mowi and Cermaq.

And go read my Bad News Bites posts as I am now up to more than 7,000 problems in the fish farm aquaculture world:

"In one mouthful, here are the kind of stories I am finding: boom bust industry, billions made and lost, crisis in lice and disease, bankruptcy, workers fired, executives jumping company to company, dividing big bonuses, fraud, corruption, litigation, conflict of interest with government and scientists, using the ocean as a free open sewer – $10.4 Billion in BC alone, killing of whales, seals and sea lions – more than 12,000 in BC so far, slavery, unpaid labour, taxpayers paying millions for diseased, dead fish – $177 Million in Canada, dueling scientists, weakening of laws, unsustainable feed, illegal fishing, jail sentences, disasters in Norway, Scotland, Chile, Canada, bullying of scientists, governments and anyone critical of their business, cartels, collusion, price fixing, fishing down the food chain to Antarctic krill, carcinogens and persistent organic pollutants, fluoroquinolones, chicken feathers in feed, animal feces in feed, eutrophication in a time of global warming, Malachite Green fungicide in USA seafood, fake industry awards, all the wild salmon in the Pacific ocean, more than a billion, put in peril... it goes on."

Norway loses 54 Million Salmon in Norway in 2021, and 50 Million Cleaner Fish Every Year


To lice, disease and so on.

Hard to believe but true: https://sciencenorway.no/fish-farming-salmon/government-report-raises-fish-farm-alarm-things-are-not-going-well-for-the-norwegian-farmed-salmon/1994959?fbclid=IwAR3zoOM55iEPkJKWDeFH3c15Fr0WS6WMpBJDUOReEz8t48UWBNTZH-e0VPI.

And then, 50 million cleaner fish die every year in fish farms in Norway. So, 100,000,000, yes, that's 100 million fish dead in Norway. This should not be allowed: https://sciencenorway.no/animal-welfare-fish-farming-salmon-industry/every-year-50-million-cleaner-fish-die-in-norwegian-fish-farms/1631228.

And then there is the post I did on the major losses around the world. The list only has losses over 100,000:

And here in Canada, the govt is considering extending the licences they told us it would end:

CHEK on Grieg's False Claim


Hi Dean Stoltz

Re your Feb 10 story on what Grieg says is a fantastic, completely new invention: its semi-closed fish farm that the sides can be lowered or raised;

Here is the real story: this kind of thing, lowering nets, is nothing new, and the same amount of sewage falls out everyday, as well as diseases.

Furthermore, Grieg didn’t tell you that it is putting together a fully closed in ocean unit in Norway, so what is happening in BC is nothing new, and you have to ground proof everything they tell you.

Here is a link to the ‘closed’ system Grieg is doing in Norway: https://www.intrafish.com/technology/grieg-seafood-teams-with-fishglobe-for-30-000-cubic-meter-self-contained-fish-farm/2-1-1166796?utm_source=email_campaign. (As water needs to be let into the site and let out, for oxygen reasons, no fish farm can be fully closed).

This means that what it is telling you here in BC is false, and it knows it’s false, even though it tells you it’s a fantastic new thing.

Please do a little ground proofing when fish farms claim something is new. And I notice that they are still using that old chestnut that wild salmon give farmed salmon lice. Ridiculous. Lice are in the ocean and fish farms vastly increase their numbers.

Should you need someone to ground proof what fish farms say, send me an email. I am typically at my computer everyday as I am a writer. And you can look at my fish farm website. Everything has references: https://fishfarmnews.blogspot.com/.

Just in from Clayoquot Action, Dan Lewis


Instead of moving to get out of the water in BC, Grieg is trying a semi-clowed fish farm design. As it lets out all the sewage and feed of the current nets, it's hard to see how it could be an improvement to avoid being taken out of the water.

GRIEG’S FALSE FISH FARM SOLUTION

Tofino BC, 8 February 2022— Grieg Seafood announced today they will be trialing 3 new “semi-closed” containment fish farms at their Esperanza operations. The new facilities will essentially be open-net pens with sea lice curtains which can be raised or lowered to seal off the sides, but not the bottom of the system.

Cermaq, another Norwegian company, recently trialed their semi-closed containment system in the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Region. After operating the facility in Ahousaht First Nations territory near Tofino for less than a year, Cermaq threw in the towel, citing “a technical fault and related fish welfare”. Cermaq stated on their website: “SCCS is immature technology under development, therefore it is not surprising when you are trialing new technology you will run into challenges”.

“Semi-closed containment systems are a false solution to the threats posed to wild salmon by fish farms,” said Clayoquot Action’s executive director Dan Lewis. “They are more ‘semi-‘ than ‘closed’, and continue to spread pathogens and pollution into the marine environment”.

The federal government has pledged to transition the industry away from open-net pens by 2025. In early 2020, a report was released by Fisheries and Oceans Canada which stated: “floating closed containment requires 2-5 years of further review”. In other words, the technology is not ready, and will not likely be ready by 2025.

“Wild salmon in Clayoquot Sound are rapidly approaching extinction”, according to Lewis. “In the Megin watershed, just north of Tofino in Ahousaht territory, the Chinook salmon population has declined by 98%, with just 21 Chinook returning to the river in 2021”.

Fish farms will be banned in Washington State by 2025, leaving BC the only jurisdiction on the west coast of North America permitting open-net pen fish farms. The federal government must move swiftly to remove fish farms from BC waters in order to protect wild salmon. Their plan must include a just transition for affected workers and communities.
