The Wild Salmon Circle is a grassroots, citizen-run and funded action group, dedicated to the removal of open-net fish farms from BC’s coast and the restoration of healthy wild salmon runs in Canada.
Starting in summer 2009, we started organizing a number of rallies: the first one was at the south entrance of the Art Gallery; the second was at DFO headquarters; the third at the Vancouver Art Gallery. At the second rally Rafe Mair and Chief Bob Chamberlin of the Kwicksutaineuk-Ah-Kwaw-Ah-Mish First Nation spoke to an audience of over a 150 people. The audience at the third rally was over 700 people and was covered by many tv and radio stations.
The goal of the Wild Salmon Circle is to build a network of citizens that can work in cooperation to put pressure on the government to properly manage the coast for wild salmon, and close open-net ocean fish farms. We will be holding more actions and we are asking for you to join us in standing up for wild salmon.
The Wild Salmon Circle is committed to giving citizens a voice in the protection of wild salmon. Opinions expressed by citizens on this website are their own, and are not necessarily shared by all members of the Wild Salmon Circle.
