Open-net pen salmon aquaculture has been operating along the west coast of Canada in the Discovery islands for almost 30 years and it was supported by the government. But not everyone was happy with the results that occurred in the surrounding waters. Indigenous groups and environmentalists were noticing that there was more disease in and outside of the pens and fewer wild Pacific Salmon coming out of the Fraser river. A court ruled that many of the licenses for the aquaculture pens should not be renewed and it's finally starting to happen. We are going to talk about it in this episode of the podcast.
