I am a biologist in British Columbia, Canada. The Norwegian salmon farming industry arrived in the remote archipelago where I was doing research in 1987. The biological and social impact of the industry, negligible at first, became apparent as their salmon stocking densities increased. Today, I have published extensively the biological impact of the industry most recently on the ISA virus and the piscine reovirus, two pathogens of significant economic impact to the industry globally. I have successfully taken Marine Harvest to court three times, presented at their AGM in Norway and was featured on 60 Minutes. I have observed the salmon farming industry closely for 29 years and feel there are solutions to social and biological conflicts with this industry.
