Credibility not on the menu for these BC chefs

This week, the anti-fish farm activists rounded up some Vancouver-area chefs to denounce sustainable salmon farming in BC.

None of them, who turned up for a press conference, have been to a B.C. fish farm, as far as anyone can tell.

These chefs, part of a lethargic group that refuses to acknowledge the science that states there is  no direct link between fish farms and the variable populations of wild stocks, have been duped into thinking B.C. fish farms are bad....

Calling on all BC chefs to come visit a salmon farm

Restaurants are given lenient warnings and fines for infractions that are potentially hazardous to the public’s health. If farmers do not stick to their high code of conduct their businesses will be shut down immediately.

British Columbia’s salmon farmers have pride, passion, respect for the environment, and unfailingly utter belief in sustainability, than most chefs can ever understand.

FOMO (fear of missing out) on new food trends is never an option for farmers.

The only trends salmon farmers follow are newer and better technology and newer and better science to ensure fish health, environmental protection, and future food supply.

Farming, more than any other business, is the bread and butter of our life now, and in the future.

This video is a mere glimpse into a day on a salmon farm.
