On February 20, 2015 I launched a DIVEST DIRTY SALMON petition directed at Norway, a country of high moral standards that is the birthplace and engine behind a very dirty industry - salmon farming.
Imagine, an industry waltzes into other countries and runs an open sewer from its feedlots into the most valuable wild salmon habitats in the world.
It's bad enough that Canada is so eager to please Norway that we trade food sovereignty and the much larger wild salmon economy for a little pat on the head, but NORWAY seems to forget the standards held dear by her people when using other countries to make a NOK.
The story appeared in Norwegian, thousands of people have signed this petition, many of them from Norway!
"I hate farm salmon" Oslo, Norway
"Fish farms are nasty. And the politicians that support them are corrupt." OSLO, NORWAY
"Save the salmon! Stop farming dirty salmon! Stop destroying the planet" KELLEFTEå, SWEDEN
"No human made fish belong to the sea"...FREDRIKSTAD, NORWAY
"This is an industry that is not even remotely sustainable. It's all about greed, and little or nothing else." BERGEN
In my blog below, wrote about the shareholders in the industry, mentioning Statoil and a few of the others. And then suddenly the list of shareholders was gone. See below.
Coincidence? We will see. Will they reappear, or have they suddenly become shy about making money in Dirty Salmon?

Meanwhile in Canada salmon farms are expanding along our coast.
