They surely sell it well. It will be interesting to see how really healthy those salmon are.

Having said that if this can help moving the farm off ours and other coasts might have some plus.

The sturgeon farm on the Sunshine Coast near Sechelt   http://www.northerndivine.com/   also has coho in a closed containment environment.   They raise coho eggs with customers in the US, for stocking  reservoirs and the like.  They even have some previously spawned coho that they put back into the tanks and a year later they were still alive.   It is an interesting visit if you have the time.

Closed containment can be done, they have the tecnology and science,  but the issue is the price received for the product.
