Fin Donnelly Poll to Get Fish Farms Out of the Ocean

This post is self explanatory. Please help Fin fund his survey.


Please use my donation for the survey, not into general revenue.

You would like to know that I have found 200 on-land fish farm systems, comprising 20,000 actual on-land fish farms around the world. Tell LeBlanc et al that in-ocean is a dying breed. Norway is fed up with Marine Harvest, Cermaq and Grieg Seafood and stopped issuing in-ocean licences in 2014. Now it gives out on-land licences for free, a $9- to $12-million subsidy based on the former auction price. Let’s do the same.

Alaska, Oregon and California forbid fish farms. After the Cooke spill in Washington, legislation to achiive the same has been brought in. In BC, Sooke and Victoria have refused to have fish farms.

Atlantic Sapphire coming on stream in Florida USA, at 150,000mt will likely destroy the Canadian industry, for transportion cost reasons and consumer preference. Hasta la Vista Norwegian-style destroyers of world oceans.

If you ever want to talk with me on this subject, let me know. I doubt there are many people who know more about the global fish farm industry than I do.

Oh, and tell LeBlanc/Trudeau that they should put a fish farm in the Rideau Canal beside the Parliament Buildings, and a mega-farm of 2 million in the Ottawa River below and see how long it is before they hate fish farms, too.

Subject: Wild salmon poll
Dear Dennis C.,
Momentum to #SaveWildSalmon is growing as activists from coast to coast are demanding the removal of open net salmon farms from our oceans.

The Washington State salmon farm escapes, the W5 expose, the ‘Blood Pipe’ video, and the occupation of two open net salmon farms in the Broughton Archipelago has increased public awareness and has definitely helped our campaign to #SaveWildSalmon

In 2018, we need to keep the pressure on - and with your help, we can do just that!  I plan to raise $5,000 to conduct a wild salmon poll in key Liberal MP ridings to raise awareness on this important issue.

Please help turn this plan into action by making a tax receiptable contribution today.

This year I continued to call on the Federal government to transition harmful open net salmon farms to safe closed containment. With each question I asked the Minister, the more public awareness grew. They are feeling the pressure and are more open to taking meaningful action.

Please make donation today to  help us fund our wild salmon poll. Donations up to $400 are tax receiptable by 75% and you will receive your credit in a few short months.

Together, we can help secure a healthy future for wild salmon and the people who depend on them.
