Coronova: Are the people disliking this video the fish farmers using vegetable oil? What sane and decent person can dislike this?

I'm not against fish farming, but only if it's done in a way that is beneficial for us consuming the salmon.


Patrick Milewski: As a person who is deeply concerned about the environment, I think fish farming has one major hurdle to overcome: waste disposal, I mean fish shit....A LOT! And that shit has a lot of nitrogen and other contaminates that are harmful if not properly disposed of! So if we cannot find a way to safely dispose of the waste or find some kind of use for the waste then fish farming could prove to be a dead end!

I. Sokolov: Please only use wild salmon. Do not eat Norwegian farmed salmon. Most of the Norwegian farmed seafood exported is heavily contaminated with dangerous toxin that causes miscarriages, strokes, and cancer.

Surayudh Yim: Why does this have so little veiws if this is 3 years old

Lisa Adler: I know wild salmon even frozen tastes much better than fresh factory farmed fish

James Davies: 'Where salmon farming is done right'. I have a problem with that statement, there is no 'right' way to farm salmon, leave them alone.

David Cline: Would you rather eat a fish that you know where it came from, what it eats, what the water quality is like etc. Or a "wild" one that you know nothing about. When was the last time you ate a "wild caught" chicken, cow, or pig. It is in the farmers best interest to make sure that the fish are not stressed in order to keep them healthy and growing. The Journal of the American Medical Association indicates that the heath benefits of eating fish (farmed or wild) far outweigh any risks associated with eating them.

Scot Fennell: TO The Editor

A 1985 Canadian Government Agenda to Severely Harm Wild Salmon in British Columbia Waters, Exposed.

This Canadian government Agenda to destroy and replace our Wild Pacific Coast Salmon, our Coastal Communities, and all of the coastal Riparian Ecology with, Multi-National Corporate Salmon Farm Feed Lots was announced quietly and out of the Public Eye in 1985. This whole agenda can only remind me of things like "" The Small pox blankets initiatives of the 1800's.""

Evidence is found here::

“” The Days of common property Fishing are Over”

The following are some of my thoughts coming out of the latest Brave attempts to Remove Salmon Farms from BC Coastal waters.

(( The Mifflin Plan, designed to break the $financial$ backs of our Salmon Fishermen and introduce Salmon Farms and the disease that comes with them, has without a doubt worked.
The destruction of our Wild Commercial Salmon populations and the redistribution of Salmon from the people of BC to Global Corporations IS what has happened. This is Crystral Clear now isn't it. ))

(( "Scotland's and Irelands Salmon have never returned, Norway's Salmon haven't returned, Chili's Salmon, Our East Coast Salmon, Our West Coast Salmon are now not returning It is Clear, open net salmon farms are destroying all of the Worlds incredible magical Wild Salmon. tearing down a massive riparian Ecology with it.
Uncontrollable sea lice and Disease plus a Huge array of other issues from these farms, are no doubt, 100% the reason. They Know it, We Know it, and Hopefully We All Know it. How can our Department of Fisheries be so vemonous toward our Ecology and People. ))

( ( Warning "" This is a Very Grave and Scary Message. "" Slice, a sea lice killing poison, or any other Human made chemistry can never be an Ecological Solution; Not in the Open Ocean.
Baby Wild Fish attracted to Fish Farms get Lice, eat farm pellets, get infectious disease and then try to make it out to open waters to grow. An Ecological Disaster is spreading throughout our Ecology.
These specific Drugs and disease is changing everything about Mother Nature's ways and will end up Destroying millions of years of Natural Oceanic Balance. After doing a lot more research, I have to conclude that we may already be too late. These diseases will not go away. I remember Norway Stating that one or more of these virus's had travelled thru-out their coast and they could not fix it. HOW?? Pour Rotenone all over the Ocean, they thought about it!! This was years ago. The Grave potential is that this has also happened here in Canada and it could well spread throughout Many species. "" We Must, Get Fish Farms out of our Water NOW>""))

(( Alaska's Fish and Game are responsible for incredible Wild Salmon returns. Some enhancement, some ranching, some simple hatchery programs, but Mostly allowing Natural methods to work. The jury of the oceans, takes a much longer time for success to be a success than a few salmon cycles. No, matter what, the oceans provide only so much fish, something has to give when Humans interfere. Therefore, for me the jury will be out for a long time to come. And anyway, Who wants to feed more People? Answer. (( the $$$BLIND$$$. ))

It IS Time For All Of BC to Stand up for Our Wild Ecology.

ali zahedi: thanks

gaspard combes: Salmon Farms are Sick, it spreads Virus, It contamines Wild Salmon, it jeopardizes Biodiversity! Salmon Farms must be shut down! Save Wild Salmon! Preserve Biodiversity! Above all, all of us as Humans must quickly revise our way of feeding! On my side, I am already vegan, so this is my contribution for preserving Biodiversity!

420yendal: This is a lie. The farmers don't feed them pellets they feed them dried shrimp.

John O'Neill: I grew up on wild Pacific Salmon (only ate what we caught) and never have had farmed salmon until I ordered salmon on a trip to the east coast. The taste difference is huge and Atlantic farmed salmon's taste is discussing. I didn't realize how biased D News was until I watched this video.

bloodshot557: Fish farming needs to stop

Edward Dergosits: I must be color blind. I have never seen pink salmon flesh. It looks orange to me.

Tony Nguyen: Farmed = steroids etc... leads to dont blame China for your cancer...farmed is in US

Spinnaker: Sardine is not a fish

Pierre Roche: Salmon Farms Fish are polluting, they jeopardize Biodiversity ! People should learn to eat less salmon as the ressource are limited on the Ecosystems!

KennyPlayZX 21: Wow farmed fish are bad
