Au Chili, la presse écrite fait grand état des virus et des maladies dans les fermes d’élevage. La Commission devrait adopter une attitude ferme contre les pressions qu’exercent les entreprises internationale aquicoles et protéger les stocks sauvages des maladies propagées par la pisciculture.
I am a concerned citizen of Duncan, Vancouver Island, currently on holiday in Chile. I have been following the process of awareness raising with regards to the damage that salmon farming is doing in the home waters of British Columbia. What has really been surprising to me is to see the headlines in the national newspapers here in Chile, the concerns here about the viruses and disease that are present in the salmon farms here.
There is also Norwegian influence here, meetings with the Chileans. The disease caused by fish farms is world-wide, and I urge you to please take a firm stand against the strong international business pressures. Please do this and all that you can, to protect our wild stocks and all that they include.
Thank you, sincerely,
