"To make the farm economically viable, the tanks will be stocked with twice the density of fish found in conventional farms"
  Is density not one of Dr. Morton's concerns? Sea feedlots are already compared to growing fish in a bath tub. Would she say this is twice as bad?

I believe Morton could care less how thick they pack them in these onshore containers, as long as they don't raise them in open pens in the ocean.

Yea , who cares how tight they pack them in those closed containers, as long as they don't infect the wild salmon, or anything else in the ocean.
