Angry Well Duh.... Study results on sea lice from fish farms on native salmonids...

Been a way for a while, don't know if anyone caught this story yet. Research that pretty much confirms the influence of fish farms on sea lice occurance on native salmonids... And the usual head-burried-in-the-sand response of the industry...

I find it interesting the delays in news getting out to the general public, and how slow this stuff is in getting out there... Seem to recall better part of a year ago, this concern was being raised in these circles....

Feiger -

Thanks for bringing this important issue to our attention. The current story link seems to have expired, here is another link to try:

or LISTEN: (npr, a good audio report)

Clouds of Lice!

"Clouds of Lice" infected juvenile Wild Salmon "for nearly 19 miles" around a farm that is only 1/8 mile (aprox 800') long. That makes the "Parasitic Footprint" 150 times larger than the farm itself!
150 times? What in the blazes are these people thinking! Where the he** is the government?
Look, 4 years ago posts were being made here (see FFF archives) talking about these same problems. Obviously, no one in the fish farming industry or local governments is doing squat to address this! Imagine the implications and damage that has been done to the Wild Fish stocks, WORLDWIDE, over the last 4 years!!!!!
And the killer here is the fact that, this problem has been around for alot longer than that!
Countless articles have been written, dicussions have ensued, subjects have been tossed back and forth. And people in high places still call it "Fear Mongering"

So I will repeat my stand. The only thing that will bring some change to the, IMHO, "Brutal Assault" on Wild Stocks by Fish Farms, is to STOP purchasing fish products that are Farm Raised! Tell everyone you know, and have them repeat the story to someone else. I have had good luck with this strategy. People get turned off real fast to fish that they might think have had lice on them at some point in the past.
And that brings up the last point, cause its these poor geneticaly modified fish kept stuffed in these cages that suffer the most damage. They don't know any different! Imagine what would happen to someone in any one of these countrys that was found with a couple thousand cats or dogs stuffed into a cage, for any reason! they would be hauled off to jail so fast for animal abuse it would make your head spin!
IMHO there is no difference between the two.

Still say this is what has happened to our Puget Sound Steelhead. But you know certain experts say our smolts migrate out the Strait. Those experts wouldn't say any other thing and don't want to set up a study to find out if our smolts do migrate North before heading out to open ocean. Ever wonder why everything in both BC and Washington sound area below the farms is almost gone as far as steelhead go?

Exclamation another link to look into - more articles...

Another Yahoo link that lists a bunch of different articles regarding this study, with a few industry articles and responses thrown in to boot...

My guess is they'll study this issue to death, kinda like the value of wild steelhead release, until there aren't any wild fish left to worry about... Of course, they'll then FULLY understand what a big f**k-up the farmed fish were to the coastal systems and wild salmonids, but by then, to late....

Regarding animal abuse. Who are you to speak of this, as a game angler you have no right to point your finger at this issue.
