Fine, let Atlantic Canada farm atlantic salmon.  I believe that fish farms on the west coast are harmful to our five wild salmon species.  I do not believe that atlantic salmon should be 'farmed' on the west coast.  Is that only because atlantic salmon are easier to raise instead of coho or chinook?

They're becoming extremely unwanted there because of things like this:

No sewage for 50 miles down the coast and that is treated. It's happened 5 or 6 times in the last years and not before. The only culprit releasing raw sewage is the Saddle Island fish farm a mile off the coast of the beach.

Great info from the 2 young lads about the sad lack of recognition by the powers that be on the plight of the farms and there affect on water quality .
 Good to hear that BC 's government stance is appreciated
