"A group of B.C. chefs are calling on the provincial government to nix
open net-pen salmon farms in B.C.
Along with David Suzuki, five chefs behind well-known restaurants in
Vancouver, say the province needs to do a better job protecting wild
salmon and support the Vancouver Island First Nation who are opposed
to the projects.
In a letter signed by 50 chefs across B.C. and sent to Agriculture
Minister Lana Popham and Forest Minister Doug Donaldson, the group is
recommending the province incentives closed-containment farms and
review the current status of B.C.s wild salmon populations.
For thousands of years, salmon have been a sacred gift to Indigenous
people living on countless rivers emptying into the Pacific Ocean,
the letter reads. As chefs, we believe wild salmon are the highest
quality for taste and nutrition and should be a priority for
protection and restoration.
