Default Re: Farmed salmon escape in Canada

Thanks Nerka for your perspective...

I saw a study comparing (as I recall) the sockeye runs on the Fraser and Skeena. Fraser fish escape to sea through the farms and the Skeena fish do not. The impact was significant, especially on smolts. What that tells me is that the damage may not be visible on returning fish, since the affected ones die young and don't make it home.

The pics of infested smolts are disgusting. Anyone who is curious can google "sea lice infestation" to see reports and pictures.
