Marine Salmon Aquaculture Has a Great Future if Done Properly

  • Bill, Last year we flew up the west coast of Chile from Patagonia on a crystal clear day and from my window seat I could see salmon or other fish-farm pens in many bays with very small communities nearby. They were quite isolated. However, it was the fact that these farms were so visible from the air that surprised me. They must have been huge. I think if Cooke and others can mitigate the waste/overfeed from their pens, and they don’t cram too many pens in bays that have other fisheries (i.e., all of them), aquaculture can find a place here.
