NASF reports massive AQ escapees

Off Norway
YIKES, could be 1,000,000 fish

The Directorate of Fisheries (Norway)reports there have been escapes from the Nordlaks site in East Lofoten, after extreme weather ravaged the area over the weekend. The number of escapes has not yet been released, but there is a total of 1 million salmon with an average size of 1.3 kg at the site. “After the weekend's storms, damage has been caused to the nets that have led to escaping salmon… We do not know how many fish have escaped…”

Samkvćmt sjávarútvegsráđuneyti Noregs hafa laxar sloppiđ frá eldisstöđ Nordlaks í Austur-Lofoten eftir ađ slćmt veđur gekk ţar yfir um helgina. Fjöldi laxa sem slapp hefur ekki veriđ stađfestur, en alls er 1 milljón laxa, ađ međaltali 1,3kg, í eldisstöđinni. "Eftir veđur helgarinnar hafa orđiđ skemmdir á netunum sem hefur leitt til ţess ađ laxar hafa sloppiđ... Viđ vitum ekki hversu margir fiskar hafa sloppiđ …"

As always... **** happens. That’s always the issue that gets glossed over during the planning and approving such operations. Accidents happen, what can go wrong will go wrong eventually. Not good! But let this serve as yet another reminder (in case we needed one) the next time some “foolproof” “failsafe” “100% safe” proposal is being pushed.

I wonder if they were triploids? i.e. if they will potentially mix their genetics with the wilds?

Triploids are 'sterile', are supposedly unable to reproduce, but it's a danger if they're normal diploid fish.
Biggest danger, as BC has found, is disease and weakened genetics.
