IN BRIEF - Fish farm escapes from open-net pen salmon aquaculture must stop, say Atlantic conservationists

Tuesday, September 12, 2023

Atlantic Salmon Federation issues latest call for action after finding escaped aquaculture fish; industry blames seal populations Gulf of Maine and Atlantic Canada

Salmon conservationists are in a fish flap with the aquaculture industry, accusing the sector of allowing farmed salmon to escape and endanger the last remaining wild stock in the Bay of Fundy between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia

But the fish farmers association has shot back, saying the group hasn’t proven the salmon are from the industry's sea pens, despite recent seal attacks that ripped holes in an aquaculture firm's nets.

Wild Atlantic salmon are an iconic species, long heralded by anglers and considered sacred to Indigenous communities.

The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) announced last week it had removed 46 escaped aquaculture salmon from the Magaguadavic River fishway in southwest New Brunswick since Aug. 1, including 10 large fish captured Tuesday, Sept. 5.
