Some huge news coming out of B.C.
B.C. salmon farm operators have been given 18 months to clear out of the Discovery Islands.
The decision today announced by Fisheries Minister Bernadette Jordan ends a long campaign among wild salmon advocates to rid a critical migratory route of open-net pen farms.
Independent biologist Alexandra Morton, who spearheaded much of the research and activism against the farms, learned of the decision from Black Press Media.
“You told me the best news in 35 years of this fight,” she said.
