I grew up on the coast of northern B.C. and have been to Tofino, B.C. many times. It was there that I read one of their local free papers about the farmed fish disease and how the disease is spreading by people preparing the fish and washing the disease down the drain.

We're all linked in some way. Scary and sad.

It reminds me of the biblical warnings not to eat meat sacrificed to Idols. Money and Greed are peoples idols today. So, I am trying to stay away from "farmed" anything. As the health of the animals are compromised due to greedily looking for cheaper ways to grow food with less money.

I live on the Sacramento river in N. California, and we are repeatedly warned not to eat the River Salmon because of the heavy metals left over from the mining industry.

I guess its time for Aquaponics. It seems to be the only viable way to provide "clean" foods for your family.

Aquaponics is what they call farmed salmon....!!
Every time we try to make nature over produce to make a profit...we seem to pay more than we get back in so many diabolical ways we cannot encompass with our pea brains.....
Why would any sane person bring Atlantic Salmon to our Pacific habitat in the first damn place.....MONEY MONEY and damn the future we make the money NOW!

When ti comes to salmon farming, Global Salmon Institute helps me a lot and there committed to making significant improvements in terms of industry sustainability and our actions reflect the objectives and principles which define our mission.

Hey mscarey - very intriguing. I checked it all out. They sound like they have great intentions and the right thinking.

I would be all for farmed salmon if it didn't affect the wild salmon, the cycle of nature that it sustains and were healthy to eat. If this organization can provide all this then I'm all for it.

I don't see it happening, it's not natural.

Kind of like the pet store guy just told my daughter that had a loss of 5 of her fish tank fish: there are no elements of natural selection in a fish breeder's tank because the breeder will do everything in their power to make all his stock live so that he can sell the supply to the pet store. In the end the weak ones out of the bunch that were "healthy" will eventually succumb to the new tank conditions because they are now faced with issues that weren't in their tank prior, i.e.: other fish health, new food, algae, bacteria, water flow, ph, fresh water, etc, etc, etc. So in her tank it WAS a natural selection taking place and the weak additions died.

So although your link is very promising I'm not feeling it. But to imagine it working - that would be fantastic.

I agree, just like KFC, here in australia we you can buy a chicken breast piece and it's the size of your fist, but go over to Woolworths (supermarket) you can buy chicken breasts the size of your feet. I would've thought for a chicken to grow that big would have to grow for while, but with all the high demand i know there is no way they can achieve this.

So KFC sells pigeon breasts ?

Woolworths sells pterodactyl breasts ?

Do bum-nuts even come from chickens anymore ?
