BC Fish Farms

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              A B-C First Nation says it’s calling the province to follow Washington State’s lead in banning fish farms. The Kwikwasutinuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation says the ban will protect native salmon populations in the Salish Sea. The First Nation says it never gave consent for 16 fish farm tenures to be issued in its traditional territory. It also wants to see migrating salmon smolts mapped, to guide industry licensing.
