Friends of Wild Salmon was originally formed to fight fish farms being established on the north coast. While we were successful in getting a moratorium for northern waters there remain many open net-pen fish farms in other parts of BC. In the last election Prime Minister Trudeau promised to remove harmful fish farms from coastal waters but is now backtracking from that commitment.
Salmon are an iconic species to British Columbians and Indigenous communities and open net fish farms are a threat to wild salmon. Will you join us in calling on the federal government to keep their promise to transition open net-pen fish farms to on-land, closed-containment systems to protect wild salmon?
We were encouraged that the 2019 Liberal election included a promise to transition open net pen salmons to closed containment systems by 2025. This was excellent news for the supporters of Friends of Wild Salmon in the Skeena watershed and coastal communities.
Sadly, the announcement in February that the federal government is back-pedaling on their promise and will now only have a plan in place by 2025 was a severe let down to our hopes of protecting BC’s endangered wild salmon before it is too late.
