Default Re: Farmed salmon escape in Canada

The mess and environmental disaster outcomes, they should be outlawed. To raise 1# requires 4# of fish; I would prefer that it would be done in the wild.
When shopping for salmon at the fish market, I always take the wild caught, the color is deep red and more nutritious. Wished Id live closer to some salmon rivers.
I do a lot of catering. If the customer wants salmon I try to sell them the wild ones. When I show them the difference, white color for the farm raised and deep red for the wild, 50% of the time they go for the wild. Even thou it is almost double the price. Now I can also add the lice into the picture. Also heard that some suppliers are putting red dye into the farmed salmon.
I believe the environmental impacts would be the same for any fish farm.
