1.5 miilion ranched salmon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just to put that number in a proper perspective, consider that the guideline harvest for the State of Alaska this season is roughly 97 million salmon. Thats harvest and as anyone can tell you whos been there they are not shy about "over escapement".
My main concern as always with Farmed finfish be it Salmon Cod or others is simple. Where is the feed going to come from???
