"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.”

Although the large proportion of the general public who eat salmon only a few times a year, can't distinguish the TASTE of farmed versus wild salmon -- the firmer TEXTURE of wild salmon is well-known.

Because of this, net-pen salmon are usually stored/processed in a strong salt brine, which tends to firm up the flesh by the time a restaurant serves it to you. But the fibre stays the same. Likewise, fish farms add canthaxanthin or astaxanthin dye to the fish feed, to make the net=pen salmon get the pink colour that wild salmon get from their diet of shrimp, etc.

Moreover, lab tests have found that for some reason, vitamin A and vitamin D are much greater in wild salmon than in farmed salmon.

Jo Public loathes Suzuki and environmentalists and left-wingers, but Joe Public DOES like good-to-eat salmon!
Liberals are VERMIN!

Asiatics are fishing out the oceans, just like we did the Cod. Witness the theft of 1000lbs of glass eels from Europe (worth $500M) that ended up in Japan.
It's a nice idea, saving the fish, but it's a waste of time, the Asians will eat everything until there is nothing left in the sea.
