Report from the Front: Alexandra Morton’s latest video


Lots of news on the farmed salmon front lately. The  world’s leading scientist working on educating the public on this threat, Ms. Alexandra Morton of Canada, has a new video covering the several disturbing bits of news regarding salmon farming. From Canada’s taking down of the Cohen Commission’s comprehensive web site (the government spent $26M on the commission!), to a new genetically modified salmon, to the EU failing to properly protect the public from high levels of toxins in Norwegian farmed salmon, this 9 minute video is worth a short break from your day.

It’s more clear than ever that saying no to farmed salmon is the right thing to do, and that their industry looks more and more like nuclear power, a failed experiment that just won’t go away because there is too much money at stake.

  1. Salmon farming ranks with shark finning and dynamiting reefs as among the most environmentally damaging, irresponsible methods of putting fish on the table. We urge people to buy wild salmon, and if wild salmon are not available, to make other, more ethical seafood choices.
