Wild Salmon Under Threat of Extinction, Study Shows

Yet another study shows that farming salmon on the West Coast is devastating wild salmon stocks. When will our government take action?

If our government will not take action, please do so yourself. Do Not buy Farmed Salmon or Farmed Steelhead (Costco)! If you know someone who does, let them know of what it is doing to our Wild Stocks! Ask at all restaurants if they are serving wild. Boycott those that are not. Let Supermarket Managers know that they are contributing to the extinction of BC Salmon buy even selling the product. Please do your part!

Here is the article and background:
