Experience of these in Europe shows this is a dark road to head down regardless of legislation. This is not just for the well publicised salmon debacle but also the fact that farming of pelagic species in the Mediterranean around Greece is proving to have a very negative impact on the local ecosystem.
I have long admired the methods of aquaculture and legislation in the US. The containment of farmed species onshore and away from natural water sources is enlightened and one with a high capacity for environmental safety.
The recently published Southwick Study, demonstrated that this is a workable and cost effective solution which safeguards the natural fish stocks.
I would encourage these methods to your Representative or Senator.
