There is an outbreak of a virus in Clayoquot Sound near the endangered salmon runs of the Megin River. A second farm tested positive on Friday near Sechelt Inlet. Government says it is IHN, government says it is not a problem for wild salmon, but the scientific literature says different.
Government and the salmon farming industry have won my complete distrust and so I am trying to find out more and trying to get samples to run tests on the farm salmon and the wild salmon nearby.
If this virus is truly no problem, the industry, the province and the federal government should be fine with independent tests.
Mainstream, owned by the Norwegian government is killing 1/2 million fish “This is code red,” says Mainstream spokesperson Laurie Jensen
