Your welcome Dave. It sure looks like Alaska has no problem farming salmon along with the Atlantic farms in Washington.

It's written by Walling of the BC Salmon Farmers Association....   She couldn't care less if every single wild salmon disappeared.... other than it would make her job easier. You're not going to get any facts straight by reading what she writes...

Not going to get any facts from you - that's for certain.

You do realize that salmon farms do exist in Puget Sound and off the West Coast of Vancouver Island and that Harrison Sockeye juveniles were found wintering off the West Coast of Vancouver Island according to Tucker et al 2009.  This is the same paper that Ms Morton uses as evidence that Harrison Sockeye migrate up the West Coast of Vancouver Island.  However, Cohen says that the evidence on the migratory route used by Harrison Sockeye is still uncertain (Vol. 3; Chapter 2, page 62).  Unless you believe the map used by farm critics in the film that show that Harrison Sockeye smolts migrate out into open ocean immediately after leaving Juan de Fuca Strait instead of staying close to the continental shelf or shorelines where their food sources are more likely to be.

Are the facts all straight by reading what only Morton writes AF?

How do you know it's written by Walling AF? I don't see any identification on the blog.  ???
And why do you say Walling doesn't care if wild salmon disappear? Has she written something that you could quote and reference? I don't recall hearing anyone, anywhere, ever say in public they would like wild salmon to disappear.

Maybe you are looking at a different article....   This is the link Fisherbob posted and Dave thinks everyone should read: http://www.canada.com/mobile/iphone/story.html?id=8187408

Of course she has never publicly admitted that she doesn't care if wild salmon disappear. If she ever did she would be looking for a new job. However simple logic makes it obvious. If there were no wild salmon there would be no negative reactions to feedlots (like in Chile), and if there were no wild salmon there would be no competition for the feedlots product on grocery shelves.

You mean that a "fun house mirror perspective" makes it obvious.

How are the gala's ticket sales going?  Don is running low on rent money and needs a new orange prison suit so make sure you donate.
