2,000 aquaculture feed bags wash up on B.C. islands



Bad enough when their fish escape but their feed bags too?

An aquaculture operation could face charges after thousands of plastic bags were found washed up on several islands southeast of Ucluelet.

A document circulated by Parks Canada staff says that approximately 2,000 large bags, designed to each hold 25 kilograms of aquaculture feed, drifted south from a local aquaculture company and washed up on one of the Broken Group Islands, part of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.
