Sea Change in West Coast Fish Farming
Mar. 7, 2017 - Campbell River, B.C., By Ian Roberts, Salmon Farmer, 25 years
My last blog post discussed fake seafood news. That blog post was timely, given an old online article has found new life on the internet titled “Farmed Salmon – One of the Most Toxic Foods in the World.” To be blunt, this is a poorly crafted piece of nonsense, and so far removed from fact that even correcting it seems to provide unworthy credibility. However, I feel we owe a response to the people who aren’t salmon farmers, who may not know our business intimately enough to respond themselves, and simply love our product but are understandably enraged.

Fraser notes Anderson was from Victoria and uniquely able to move the focus of Canadian fisheries management from east to west coast at a time when it was required to do so.
