Trudeau Government Backpedals On Phasing Out B.C. Open Net Salmon Farms By 2025

When something sounds too good to be true…

Following an outcry from the salmon farming industry, the Trudeau government has backed away from its election campaign commitment to phase out open net-pen salmon farming on B.C.’s West Coast by 2025.

Jane Deeks, press secretary for Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, confirmed in an email to The Narwhal that a transition plan will be developed by 2025 but open net-pen salmon farms will not be removed by that date.
