The problems with the salmon fishery are caused by a number of factors that in combination have created an ever-increasing threat to B.C. salmon populations. These factors include climate change; destruction of both freshwater and marine habitat; the emotional debate around aquaculture; and a lack of resources for research.

How much research is needed to recognize that wild salmon populations are threatened when tons of farmed salmon sewage is released into migration routes? when fish food containing pesticide is released directly into the water stream?
when bleach is released into ocean water?

People on this website have stated that there are sewage problems in the Fraser Watershed. Money is better spent on fixing broken sewage plants because research will tell us what we already know.

I hope common sense is an option when making decisions because we need more common sense action.
