Stand up for modern, responsible salmon farming

PETITION

"Salmon farming is a safe, responsible industry for British Columbia. It protects wild salmon and builds healthy communities, all based on good science. Please support its continuing success."

That's the message we're sending to elected leaders at all levels of government. Please follow the instructions below to add your signature.

In addition to making this demand, we'll be providing those decision-makers with the following information.

Facts to consider about salmon farming in British Columbia

Dear Decision Maker,

Please examine the facts about British Columbia salmon farming and ensure you are making proper decisions in support of this valuable field.

Salmon farming is...

Science based

Always improving

Reliant on First Nations participation for 80 per cent of farmed salmon produced

Not harmful to wild salmon

Extensively involved in wild salmon habitat restoration and hatchery programs

 

Much misinformation has been spread, and continues to be spread, about salmon farming. The damage created by this misinformation is unacceptable.

Be informed

Consider this perspective from Professor Don Noakes, Dean of Science and Technology at Vancouver Island University:

The industry hasn't always been perfect, but today it is clear that it operates safely for wild salmon and the environment.

Salmon farming and finfish aquaculture can be a significant contributor to British Columbia and Canadian food security and trade success, but not without the support of elected officials. Please get informed - this Government of Canada website is a good place to start:

Fisheries and Oceans Aquaculture Web Page

 

There is too much at stake for reckless decisions based on perspectives that refuse to acknowledge the science of responsible finfish aquaculture.

It's time to move in a positive, fact-based direction that respects wild salmon and indigenous aspirations.

Act now – add your name to this petition

We need to show decision makers why, if they truly care about wild salmon, they cannot ignore the real facts about salmon farming.
