http://conservationmagazine.org/2009/04/taming-the-blue-frontier/


Ten thousand years ago, humans made the shift on land from hunting and gathering to farming. Now the same transformation is taking place at sea....


   Many of today’s coastal fish farms have decimated habitat and spread disease into local fish populations. Making matters worse, fish farms represent a net drain on populations of wild fish, which are often caught just so they can be ground into feed for salmon and other species.

▶ FACTORY FARMED SALMON INFECTING TENS OF MILLIONS WITH DEADLY PRV VIRUS - SALMON POPULATIONS COLLAPSE


Tens of millions of British Columbia's wild salmon dying in uncontrollable outbreak.


The escalating battle to protect Pacific wild salmon from a Norwegian virus.


THIRTY MILLION ATLANTIC SALMON were imported into B.C. from Norway, before anyone knew that the virus existed.  


In 2017, we reported that 94 percent of farm salmon in markets are infected and that the virus has spread coastwide. But it is significantly more prevalent in wild salmon caught near salmon farms.


Wild Chinook near these farms are in collapse despite fishing closures. The oddly yellow Chinooks died slowly and painfully, releasing the virus into the surrounding waters

It uses the term ‘bioengineered’ instead of the more commonly used ‘genetically modified’ or ‘genetically engineered’, and allows ‘bioengineered’ ingredients to be disclosed in several different ways: in text, a symbol, a digital link printed on packaging, or text message.

 -▶  VIRUS-LADEN FARMED SALMON

- FOI reveals over half of samples test positive for Piscine Reovirus


"Unsuspecting shoppers are getting more than they bargain for when buying farmed salmon," said Don Staniford, Director of Scottish Salmon Watch and author of 'The State of Scottish
Salmon Farming'. "Hidden extras lurking in Scottish salmon include Piscine Reovirus:
- Cardiomyopathy Syndrome, Amoebic Gill Disease, Infectious Pancreatic Necrosis and a host of nasty viruses, pathogens and diseases.


If consumers realised that over half of all farmed salmon tested was laden with Piscine Reovirus they would avoid it like the plague. Far from being 'healthy', Scottish salmon is a battery farmed, virus-ridden, disease hell."

WATCH:


Scientists are calling it a crisis. Unprecedented numbers of sea lice are being found on vulnerable young wild salmon smolts in the Clayoquot Sound. Numbers so high, they’re likely to be lethal for a large part of next generation of a species that’s already struggling. Kori Sidaway has more.

 ▶ INSANITY - CATCH WILD FISH TO FEED FARMED FISH!
 WILD PACIFIC MACKEREL STOCKS THAT FEED FARMED SALMON IN MASSIVE DECLINE.


Farmed salmon, that ubiquitous pink fish decorated with ribbons of fat, can thank the forage fish of the southern Pacific ocean – like anchovy and jack mackerel – for their calorie-rich diet. Indeed, more than 5 pounds of jack mackerel typically can go towards raising one pound of farmed salmon. But that food supply – and the ocean ecosystem that supports it — may be in peril, according to a new report by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. According to scientists the ICIJ spoke to, "supertrawler" fishing vessels from Asia, Europe and Latin America have contributed to a 63 percent decline in jack mackerel stocks since 2006. At the current rate of overfishing, the world's stock of jack mackerel, which is largely located off the coast of Chile, could collapse soon.

-▶ AQUA FARMS CRAM FISH INTO SMALL SPACES (#CAFOs)


Scottish fish farmers have been forced to use record amounts of highly toxic pesticides to combat underwater parasites that prey on salmon, raising fears of significant damage to the marine environment.


The chemicals used are highly toxic to many marine species, especially crustaceans. The treatments use organophosphates, which attack the nervous system of sea lice and teflubenzuron, which interferes with their ability to grow shells. The chemicals used are highly toxic to many marine species, especially crustaceans.....

THE HIGH COSTS OF AQUACULTURE AND HUMAN IGNORANCE


An illuminating 80-minute investigative documentary film 


produced by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard about the protection of wild fish and impact of fish farming on ocean and human health


-▶  The film explores the high cost—ecological, financial and cultural—of our mistaken belief that engineered solutions can make up for habitat destruction. It traces the impact of fish hatcheries and farms and the extraordinary amount of American tax dollars wasted on an industry that hinders wild fish recovery, pollutes our rivers and contributes to the problem it claims to solve.

GENETICALLY MODIFIED SALMON - A FAST GROWING HYPE 


"The genetic modification is cruel and raises serious ethical concerns as the GM salmon suffers from deformities and health problems. Moreover, it is unnecessary to increase the growth rate. The most important area in fish breeding is to focus on getting healthy animals, the quality of meat and animal welfare."

▶ CAN FARMED FISH FEED THE WORLD WITHOUT DESTROYING THE ENVIRONMENT.


 But large-scale aquaculture can have significant environmental consequences. It can take a lot of wild fish to feed certain farmed fish. And when tons of fish are crowded together, they create a lot of waste, which can pollute the ocean. Fish farms can also be breeding grounds for disease. Plus, shrimp farming in Indonesia is at least partly responsible for the region's declining mangrove forests.
