Okay, to be fair, they are not going to kill humans, but they are definitely going to kill a lot of farmed salmon, and some wild fish, too. You may even end up eating some salmon that survived with a few wounds but still made it to your dinner plate. Yuk.
This is what the Good Food Fighter is doing about it.
Why are wild fish swimming alongside farmed (prisoner) fish?
Glad you asked!
This is actually true. Netted pens—often round but can be all shapes—are submerged into the ocean (and other water ways) and often placed right on the migratory paths of wild salmon. These cages, or “farms”, are rampant with disease, which is controlled by drugs—similarly to cows and chickens on factory farms. All of these contaminants affect the unsuspecting wild salmon swimming by, and if they are infected by lice, they will usually die.
To learn more, read my fascinating article about what really happens and why, who is doing this, why it’s not being controlled, and who is buying sick, deformed fish at the supermarket. I hope it’s not you!
Remember to always ask for wild fish and be mindful about where it’s soured. Alaskan is usually the cleanest.
