I new something was missing in the declining fish number equation. Dams have been on the rives for close to a century or more, logging has been going on for even longer, fish hatcheries have been putting out genetically poor stock generation after generation, commercial fishing has been declining throughout out the decades. Now I watch this and I'm stunned, If dams, logging and commercial fishing, and hatcheries were not enough. Now we are attacking them in there home waters with giant net pens designed like tea bags of disease steeping in the currents as wild and hatchery fish swim by. To make it worse, agencies paid for with tax dollars are working with the polluters to do there level best to kill off the publics natural resource salmon, stealhead, and who knows how many other important creatures through the loss of the salmon for tax revenue and fees.

So much misinformation in this video.
Check out
If you don't like the idea of farms, so be it, but the inaccuracies, logical leaps and outright BS in this film need to be questioned.
