Warning: graphic and disturbing content. This is my longest caption ever, but this issue affects all of us so please read. Photograph donated by John and Jane Doe. In 2001, I photographed my first major assignment for National Geographic on the fish farming industry. I went in as a naïve, young and unbiased journalist. Two years and five countries later, I was horrified by this industry. Atlantic salmon farming is destructive to ecosystems, and especially wild fish stocks. Doctors warn that eating farmed fish is destructive to our health, especially for pregnant women. I was proud when the resulting story won first place at the World Press Photo Awards for journalistic storytelling. At the time, our story told how it took four pounds of wild anchovies to make a pound of farmed salmon, causing the collapse of foundation fish stocks in some waters. This industry uses more antibiotics and pesticides than any other livestock industry on Earth. Fish farms cause sea lice infestations that are collapsing some wild trout and salmon stocks wherever these farms exist. We even reported on how the industry uses a chemical colorant in their feed to give fish flesh—which is otherwise pale—a bright orange color. Things have only became worse—a lot worse. As reported by the BC provincial veterinarian in charge, 80% of the BC salmon farming industry is infected with Piscine reovirus, which is a highly contagious blood virus that causes heart disease in salmon. An infected salmon farm can shed up to 60 billion infectious virus particles per hour...let that soak in. Wild salmon are not built to survive this and many may die before being able to complete their epic journey upstream to spawn.
Why do we put a much larger tourism industry, our entire marine ecosystem, our health, our commercial fishing, our sport fishing industries, and most importantly, our relationship with First Nations, at risk for a few people in Norway to get rich? Who in our provincial and federal governments are making these decisions, and why are we not standing up and fighting?
