Through the fall, we're hosting book launch and speaking events across the province with the authors of the newly published Salmon Wars: the Dark Underbelly of Our Favourite Fish. With the force of this damning industry exposé behind us, we're calling on our leaders to put a stop to the expansion of salmon farming in our own waters.
Big feedlot salmon farming is back on the menu in Nova Scotia.
While the federal government puts an end to sea-cage salmon aquaculture in BC, Nova Scotia is the newest industry frontier for this out-of-date, pollutive business model. Provincial leaders are prepared to enable a fourfold expansion in salmon farming operations, with industry players looking to increase production from 20 million to 80 million pounds of farmed fish annually.
Coastal communities are forced to fight back to protect their local waters. Now, as several Nova Scotia feedlot proposals await government approval, investigative journalists and award winning authors Doug Frantz and Catherine Collins have released the newest and most damaging salmon farming exposé yet – this time with a distinct Atlantic flavour.
Join the authors and co-hosts with the Healthy Bays Network at one of six locations for the Salmon Wars book launch and coastal community event series, as we call on our government to put a stop to expansion once and for all.
Find out more about the book and about the authors at the Salmon Wars website.
