Fish farms out, say activists at Wild Salmon Warrior rally
After years of pleading with the Norwegian salmon farming industry to move their salmon farms out of wild salmon habitat and into closed containment, First Nations and British Columbians have run out of patience with the fish farming industry, Activist Communique reports.
While the Fisheries and Ocean's Canada (DFO) endorses the industry, the Norweigan industry is looking to expand.
Today, supporters gathered at the Vancouver Art Gallery for the Wild Salmon Warrior rally.
"First Nations and non-First Nations alike will be uniting to encourage Justice Cohen to hear the voice of the people say 'Protect Wild Salmon and Get the Fish Farms Out!'" Activist Communique reported.
The public inquiry is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today. Learn more about the rally here.
