Just a reminder of the rally this Saturday, Feb 20th! Come out to Vanier Park – behind the planetarium in Vancouver – at 1 PM to send a strong message to the Norwegian companies that own 92% of the fish farms in BC!
The issue has been front and centre in the Norwegian media following an explosion of sea lice and emerging resistance to the SLICE pesticide in farms there, and the Norwegian government is facing increasing pressure to reform the industry. With international media in town and the world watching, let’s show them that British Columbians demand an immediate move to closed containment.
Traffic has been great even with the Olympics, and there is parking at the Planetarium, but you can also easily take the 22 or 02 bus from Burrard Skytrain station among other options. Check translink.ca for all routes and schedules, and remember to give yourself some extra time for travel.
Input for Aquaculture Regulatory Framework: Deadline February 26!
Fisheries and Oceans is seeking input as they start developing a regulatory framework for aquaculture in BC under the National Aquaculture Strategic Action Planning Initiative (NASAPI).
We posted this along with what we think should go into the regulations in our December Newsletter. With the deadline for submissions next week though, we wanted to throw a reminder out for anyone who hasn’t had a chance to send in their suggestions.

29 Hour Fast for Wild Salmon
Members of the Wild Salmon Circle joined Chief Bob Chamberlin in a 29 Hour fast this past Monday and Tuesday, along with Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, Chehalis Chief Willie Charlie, Gwawaenuk Tribe hereditary Chief Charlie Williams, and dozens more First Nations, British Columbians, and even some Norwegians. That's 1 hour of fasting for each fish farm tenure in the Musgamagw Tsawataineuk territory in the Broughton Archipelago. There is great concern among the First Nations people in this territory that these Norwegian-owned fish farms are causing the collapse of wild salmon runs and their own sustainable shellfish fisheries.
A meeting has been requested with the King of Norway, who is visiting during the Olympics, although he has rejected the invitation so far.
"The Chiefs want to discuss with King Harald the conduct of certain Norwegian Fish Farm Companies and how their business operations are not in accordance with the United Nations' Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples which the Norwegian Government voted Yes to at the UN General Assembly," said Chief Bob Chamberlain.
Letter from Former Attorney General of Norway
The former Attorney General of Norway Georg Fredrik Rieber-Mohn wrote a letter of concern regarding salmon farms this week. He was part of a 'wild salmon plan' back in 1999 that faltered due to salmon farm industry lobbying pressures. In his letter he states: "Atlantic salmon in the wild in Norway are now threatened with extinction in many rivers." He continues, "The lessons to be learned from Norway are painfully clear but the solution is an easy one. If you want to protect wild salmon then you have to move salmon farms away from migration routes."
This is the message we will be promoting during our upcoming rally. We will also be coordinating a letter writing action to the King of Norway to request that he persuade Norwegian companies to move fish farms out of wild salmon migration routes and to introduce closed containment systems to protect wild fish from sea lice. If you are unable to make it to the rally but would like to write to the King, who has great influence and respect in his home country, his address is:
