Alexandra Morton kicks ass.

The B.C. Supreme Court ruled Monday the federal government — not the
province — has exclusive jurisdiction over the management of salmon
farming, a landmark decision hailed as a victory for the future of wild
stocks.

“The regulation of fish farming by the province is ultra
vires, beyond its power,” said a triumphant Greg McDade, the lawyer who
pursued the case on behalf of independent sea-lice researcher Alexandra
Morton and others.

Scientists turn beer waste into fish food

66972851.TbGPSWFS

"A large facility, a large brewery for example, might put 40 to
50,000 pounds of waste beer down their drain every day. So we can
convert that to 30 to 35,000 pounds of bacterial protein everyday.
Regular fish feed has 25 to 50 percent protein. Our ingredient has 65
percent protein."  LINK (Via: 9News)
