Before the Index, see this table of the chemicals in farmed salmon:

Now, the index for fishfarmnews for 2015 and late 2014. The purpose of the site is to list references, along with text so that you can go to the source documents and form your own informed opinion. 2015 will be remembered as the year of the tipping point for getting fish farms out of the pristine oceans they use as free open sewers.

Environmental damage, sewage, diseases, seals killed with a bullet to the head and so on will be ended when fish farms set up on land. Citizens who have to live with fish farms overwhelmingly reject them. This is happening all around the world: BC, Nova Scotia, NB, NL, Ireland, Scotland, Norway itself, Chile, Tasmania and etc. European countries in the Baltic Sea area have strict laws preventing fish farm setting up in the ocean.

The only way forward for the Norwegian-style fish farms is to set up on land or go back to Norway and set up on land. Norway is so fed up with their environmental damage, fraud, pollution, sewage, jail sentences that it is giving out on-land licences to get fish farms out of its ocean. This is a $9- to $12-million subsidy for each on-land licence because that is the auction price for in-ocean licences.

Time for Justin Trudeau and Hunter Tootoo to get fish farms out of the BC ocean and save wild salmon as well.

Here is the index for 2014 and earlier posts:

Here is a very long litany of issues in the fish farm/seafood industry I have found in the last six months, including boom bust industry, the employees being the first to get fired, fraud, jail sentences, human slavery... it goes on and on:
