BC's wild salmon is under threat. By moving salmon farms to closed containment, we can protect wild salmon from sea lice, pollutants and other harmful substances that can come from open-net salmon farms.
The future of BC aquaculture is closed containment. The technology exists, is economically feasible, and the prospective jobs and economic opportunities for British Columbians are immense.
Fin has been fighting to save wild salmon for over 25 years. He twice swam the 1,400km length of the Fraser River, to draw attention to threats to this mighty salmon river.

His last wild salmon campaign received more than 10,000 postcards from individuals and organizations across the country.
This bill WILL be debated and voted on in the House of Commons. Make sure you sign up for our wild salmon campaign newsletter to keep informed on the latest developments
