Preaching to the choir, I was delighted because it's better than his typical rhetoric. 

Also how is a land based operation suppose to compete when their is cheaper ocean pens available. Do you go to the mall or do you buy it off amazon?

Fisherbob,

unfortunately I don't think the truth matters, like it or not fish farms seem to be the new punching bag and if sockeye don't come back this year i can guarantee everyone will be pointing at fish farms weather that had anything to do with it or not.   

It seems some refuse to think that climate change and other things like pollution are having an effect on our environment and our fish stocks. People are always looking for a quick easy fix and they are hoping that fish farms are that fix.

Having activists encouraging "the quick fix" on social media is helping this whole anti fish farming movement along very quickly.  It will be up to the politicians, not scientists, if BC continues to be progressive and have fish farms.

“The family-owned Canadian company took over the Washington locations in 2016 after buying Seattle-based Icicle Seafoods. Cooke is now the only commercial-scale operator of Atlantic salmon net pens in Washington waters.”

Protectionist policies, easy to stop fish farms when your only effecting a foreign company. So typical of what happens to Canadian company’s in the USA.
