Extremely sad/bad news

2 pic's of infected Norwegian fish caught yesterday .The 1st one had been so sea lice infected that she had obviously rubbed herself almost to death to rid herself of this slime .

Sea lice infested WILD Salmon from Norway .Most probably infected by passing farmed fish pens WHEN are the gov'ts of Norway Scotland and Canada going to react before it's too f##king late!

$$$$$$ fishing farming talks I guess

Hello Salar-1,
thank you for posting. That really looks very sad. Did you catch them by yourself or do you know, where they have been caught?
Fish like those, caught in Norway, should be sent in to NINA for further conclusions. But anyway, I am with you to ban seabased salmon farms.

Time is running... A little bit of work, a little bit married, fishing, hunting... What else?

These were posted by a fisherman from Norway and they ARE sending the info onwards . I just forwarded the info as I'm on Quebec's Northshore right now washing some flies in the river

when there is enough public interest and outrage they will respond but not likely any sooner.
very sad indeed and thanks for reminding us of an ongoing crisis.

Sad sad sad And to think that aquaculture was supposed to save the wild salmon by eliminating the need to fish them commercially!

Thanks for sharing!

As soon as some multinational food companies discover another way to destroy something that will save them more money.
And then it takes decades for all politicians to agree that it is time.

My best memories are not too old!!

It's all about the politics of money...I blame the system that allows business interests to curry/buy favors with the politicians. Call it lobbying, call it graft, the point is money is passing hands in one shape or another, surreptitiously, and leaving the public's interest out of the decision making. Until this corruption, yes corruption, is eliminated, there is very little we can do as the minority we are. With the public being force-fed media cake of unknown origin, and that divides us while setting each other to conflict and commanding our every attention, those that profit from the dissension will continue their ways, knowing there is no chance of the government addressing the harm being done. When our representatives changed from the patriotic citizen legislators to the professional careerist politicians, we lost our way in the ever increasing darkness they created to shield themselves from exposure and accountability.

The tree of liberty indeed needs a healthy pruning, but who will be tasked to do the cutting? Cut too severely and risk death, or cut away minimally only to see the parasitic suckers taking over at first opportunity. And where do we find the good men needed to return the tree to full glory? Are there such men left, or women for that matter? Have we moved from being citizens to being simply consumers? Like mushrooms, kept in the dark and fed schit?

The End.

Jet sleds/boats destroy redds in the spawning grounds with their turbulent jet wash, scouring the bottom and further burying some of the eggs while ejecting the rest into the stream flow to be eaten. To protect fish, these boats must be restricted from the spawning grounds.

End the demand for salmon...I for one will never eat salmon that I did not catch personally...that goes for all the coldwater species. We must get salmon off of the menus..raise the price significantly or post those photos everywhere for people to see.

Hello.. Its even worse than this. Weve seen salmon with heavy growth of fungus from Sweden Finland Norway Scotland, they all look the same. One reason much discussed is a widespread deficit of tiamine, vitamine B1. And from Norway just weeks ago came a notion about still another disease in the fishfarms. Better use the hotline to the antibiotics people... once again. Yours borano20

This is heartbreaking to see and hear.

...and thus dissolute men abandon themselves to excesses which cause them fever and death, because the mind perverts the senses, and because the will still speaks when nature is silent

They have to farm salmon to eat, there are few wild salmon left! They just have to find a way of not affecting the last wild stocks.
Can't keep killing what's left of the wild stocks .
Sad but true.
