so i'm not really a guy who gets passionate about current issues and shit like that, but this is something that i am pretty passionate about.
salmon farms on the west coast of BC are fucking up the wild stocks and our wonderful Harper government is covering it up.
farmed salmon is fucking disgusting and people need to know the truth about it. diseases and parasites run through entire farms and spread into the wild stock and some of these diseased fish are reaching our food supply.
I have been fishing BC's rivers around the whistler area and i have witnessed the prespawn deaths of dozens of salmon with my own eyes. in my opinion, wild salmon is one of BC's most important natural resources, and we need to do a better job protecting it. next time you buy salmon, please make sure you are buying wild salmon. it tastes 10000 times better than farmed and you are supporting a sustainable industry that employee's thousands of BC fishermen.
this documentary is incredibly well done and it opens your eyes to the damage the BC salmon farming industry is doing to wild salmon. I know its an hour long and not many of you guys will watch it, but i encourage you to check it out if you have the time. i hope that my children and my children's children will be able to enjoy salmon fishing on our rivers for years to come.
