Independent, published science indicates that sea lice and viruses from open net-cage fish farming have a significant impact on B.C.’s salmon stocks. DFO’s efforts to promote the aquaculture industry appear to be in direct conflict with its mandate to protect wild fisheries. Closed containment is the only permanent solution to mitigate the impacts on Fraser River sockeye, and needs to be embraced by all stakeholders.
