Why does this matter? Because while nobody is paying much attention, salmon farms from the Gulf Islands to Queen Charlotte Strait may be having long-term effects on BCs coastline and salmon-spawning rivers. Supporters point out that fish farms produce food, create jobs and boost the local economy, as well as earning millions of dollars in export sales. Critics say they contaminate the ocean, spread diseases and harm seals and whales, and that Atlantic salmon escaping from the pens threaten the survival of the remaining wild Pacific salmon stocks. This book provides a clear, balanced and informative survey of an industry that affects all of us. Betty C. Keller is the author of histories and biographies. Rosella M. Leslie has written many articles on health, fishing and coastal history. Light wear. Unmarked. Nice solid copy.
