Brokaw Report Probes Fish Farms' Threat to Wild Salmon
03/05/2010
First major TV news story cites global warming and fish farms in wild salmon declines
by Craig Weatherby


We've been covering the crisis facing wild salmon from British Columbian rivers… some of which are harvested in Alaskan waters.

Most salmon farms worldwide are Norwegian-owned, and Chiefs and members of several First Nations located in and around Vancouver protested at the Olympics, to alert the Norwegian King and citizenry to the threat to British Columbia's wild salmon. 

For more on that event, see “Hunger Strike Turns Olympic Flame on Salmon Farms.

Tom Brokaw shines light on salmon farms; How you can help
On Wednesday night, March 3, NBC Nightly News ran a report by former anchor Tom Brokaw, concerning the decline in wild Canadian salmon.
His particular focus was the alarming 90 percent drop in the Fraser River salmon run, which we reported on last fall (see “Salmon Defenders Rally to Protest Threat from Fish Farms”).

Brokaw's report speaks for itself, so we'll let him do the talking. Click here to see Tom Brokaw's report on the drastic decline in wild Canadian salmon, and a possible solution.

Despite the obvious evidence in this case, and the past history of farm-generated lice killing wild salmon, Canadian authorities have dithered.

We urge to go to the Wild Salmon Circle Web site, and visit adopt-a-fry.org to sign the petition addressed to Canadian Fisheries Minister Gail Shea and Gordon Campbell, Premier of British Columbia.

Americans buy 80 percent of farmed salmon from British Columbia
so we bear a responsibility to act in the defense of the wild salmon.

We'll continue you posted on important developments, and let you know how you can help!
