The commission should investigate the impact of chemicals, disease and parasites from open net pen aquaculture along wild salmon migration routes, as well as the government’s role in allowing fish farms to proliferate despite the precautionary principle.

The inquiry into the decline of the Fraser River sockeye must look at disease and parasite/disease transfer from open net pen industrial feedlot aquaculture sites along the migration route of wild Pacific salmon.
aquaculture companies must be made to disclose all chemicals, neurotoxins and medicines introduced into the marine environment along these routes. The commission must look at the government’s role in undermining environmental standards and specifically creating an environment that allowed fish farms to expand along the BC coast despite the precautionary principle.
