From time to time

From time to time we will call on the Loop Army to act on behalf of something that makes a difference in saving WILD FISH and WILD PLACES. This is one of those times!!!

When you signed the petition to enforce the Fisheries Act on the salmon feedlots, you checked the box that said you would be willing to help.

It is essential that we build up the names on this petition because the more of us there are, the harder it will be for government to close the door on our request to protect the wild salmon.

I realize Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is not going to willingly force compliance from the fish “farm” industry, but that is the law and public pressure will help.

Marine Harvest has appealed the BC Court decision because they are concerned they may not own their fish once they go into Canadian waters.

Their licences are unconstitutional because they were granted by the Province and they may not own their fish........

Please print this and post wherever you think it might inform people about the petition.

Also post on Facebook and distribute in anyway available to you.

Let me know if you have ideas on how to make people aware that this petition exists. It was signed by over 2000 people with no effort at all, it will be interesting to see how far it can go with some effort.

Thank you!

  2. I can't remember the exact statistics, but some crazy high percentage of all the smolt that pass by the fish farms are attacked and killed by sea-lice. Don't quote me, but I think it was 80% kill rate.
