For those intetrested in the salmon farm issue raging here on the west coast, the fish bc forum has an interesting discussion @http://forum.fishbc.com/index.php?showtopic=13070 or if that doesn't work it is titled " link to stolt's sea lice data".
Thanks for the interesting thread on farm raised sea lice. Even up in BC you have folks that do not understand that if you play with mother nature your going to get burned. But money and greed is the nature of man now and the neocons will try and win at any cost.
Some of us down here in the North Puget Sound area are concerned that our Steelhead smolts travel to open ocean via the northern route and the inside passage. No study worth a damn has been done and it seems our crash on steelhead populations goes right along with your increase in Salmon farming. Do you know anything about the studies being done up your way on radio tracking steelhead smolts from the Eastern Vancouver Island river systems?
I'm glad to see so many of you north of the border sticking up for wild fish populations.
Thanks again for the thread.
