Cooke eyes raising steelhead instead of Atlantic salmon in state net pens – PDN


Here they come again….


Cooke Aquaculture, which shut down its Ediz Hook fish farm in May, wants to begin raising steelhead instead of Atlantic salmon in its net pens in Washington state, a company official said Monday. The company also has sites at Bainbridge Island, Hope Island, Clam Bay and Orchard Rocks. “All of our sites would be in the mix,” Cooke spokesman Joel Richardson said, adding that the facility shutdown in Port Angeles remains in litigation in Thurston County Superior Court. Paul Gottlieb reports. (Peninsula Daily News)

  1. What are their sources for steelhead eggs? Has this been done anywhere before? There is a level of trust required…I feel that Cooke has broken that trust.
