One Response to Salmon Farming May Doom Wild Populations, Study Says

  1. Mack P. Bray says:

    A couple o’ months ago, I contacted Albertson’s and suggested they quit selling their crappy-tasting, environmentally harmful farm-raised salmon and they emailed me some outdated and biased propaganda about how salmon farming was really “an okay” industry. Bullshit.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
