Feds move to phase out open net salmon farms in B.C.

The BC government took steps toward keeping their promise to remove open-net pen salmon farms from B.C. waters by 2025, say, conservationists. By not renewing the Discovery Island licenses and limiting all other salmon farm licenses to two years, the government has signaled that open-net salmon farming in B.C. is coming to an end.

The phase-out, however, will not be immediate.
