Open net-pen salmon farms are not welcome in B.C. waters. The vast majority of British Columbians - Indigenous, urban, rural, coastal - want them OUT!!!

Don't be fooled by the desperate misrepresentations of a sunsetting industry.

Federal licences for all B.C. salmon farms expire at the end of June. We expect this government to fulfill the prime minister's promise and the mandate he gave to subsequent fisheries ministers to transition open net-pen salmon farms out of B.C. coastal waters and into land-based closed containment THIS YEAR.

Since fish farms were removed from the Discovery Islands in 2021, the changes we’ve observed have been striking. The out-migrating juvenile wild smolts have been virtually free of salmon lice and visibly healthier. Those very fish returned this summer to feed the northern Salish Sea ecosystem and I had a chance to witness their return and pay my respect.
