And they want people to eat that, disgusting without a doubt. Then the sea floor is littered with fish turds that normally don't occur in suck high density. Again Gov't at work screwing thing up.

Nothing like abusing a resource until it's completely destroyed. Hate to sound like a tree hugger, but as long as there's a profit to be made, this will always be the path. Truly sad.

I know some salmon farmers out east and they don't eat their own raised salmon (Atlantics). The meat is a very disgusting grey colour until the last weeks before market/slaughter when they give them beta-carotene in their food to make their flesh "salmon" coloured (they decide how much based on the kind of colour they think people would like to see and eat). It's quite disgusting. I use to fish for pollock and cod under the salmon cages as well (pollock about 2-8 lbs are alot of fun on med-heavy rods with 8-10lb line - if you want something to hit your bait hard and want a tired arm after a a few fish...this is what you should do) - ate a few of them and that was it. They were disgusting soft flesh that had a strange taste to them. Pollock not caught under cages are great. Cod under cages were a little better but still... Cleaning both species caught under cages - the smell made me gag quite a few times (that also stopped me from keeping fish to eat when I caught them under cages but won't ever give up a pollock or cod caught "unfed"). I never eat farmed fish anymore (any species of fish, esp. after learning more about how farming is done).
It is all about greed (whenever you someone saying it's not economical, they mean, they aren't making the loads they want or think they are entitled to make). The salmon farmers I know agree, but they are not the owners/bosses - just hired hands. Fish farming has little to no benefit for the environment (and does not stop/reduce the harvest of wild fish; in fact, it increases the harvest of fish lower down on the food chain to feed their farmed fish, which can be as big or a bigger issue when we start to fish down the trophic level). Coincidently (?), there was another news bit on CBC about people trying to save herring out in BC to try to save salmon as well. I cant wait to see the day our fish farms are all stopped or at least, face some major changes to make sure they are not doing the longer term damages presently.

There's nothing wrong with hugging a tree.... I am so disgusted with this blatant abuse of our natural resources so that profits can be made that i can go and hug a thousand trees right now!!... I hope the Minister, the first nations, environmentalists and all of US emerge victorious from this saga and save the wild salmon forever.....

Well if we better protected our creeks and river systems and added proper pools for them to chill in they would be doing very well on their own but unfortunately allowing other Countries to build the 407 was far more important but hey if our Terrorist Government and our retarded Ministry would actually invest our tax dollars to stocking like they are supposed to ffs then we could actually fish for Walleye again and other species too This is what happens when we tolerate a Terrorist Government that steals and wastes our tax money

That was a weird rant about the 407. 😂😂😂 off topic but the 407 was not built by other countries. The 407 was build by Canadians and a portion was sold. The 407 is owned by indirectly owned subsidiaries of Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (total 50.01%), Spainís Cintra Global S.E., a wholly owned subsidiary of Ferrovial S. A. (43.23%) and by SNC-Lavalin (6.76%).

I hate salmon farms and yes they make absolutely no sense. The fish is not healthy and neither is the practice of farming fish. Itís a counter productive industry as it takes 1.25lbs of ocean caught bait to make the food they feed farmed salmon to get back 1 lb of farmed salmon. We net loss .25lbs of ocean fish. Thatís just the net loss side. The pollution factor under the nets, lost nets, escapee fish damaging habitats they donít belong in, sea lice plagues etc are so many more reasons to stop ocean salmon farming.

I thought the subject here wasn't the "terrorist gvmnt", 407 or walleye, but the bleak future of the salmon fishery. Can we stay on topic please.
