In my blog below, I wrote a letter to the Norwegian CEO of Grieg Seafood whose thousands of Atlantic salmon are dying/died off Gold River. I expected a straightforward Norwegian answer - why the fish are dying, who made the diagnosis and the opportunity to view the test results.
But Mr Vike has not answered, instead he went to the media, calling my allegations "utter nonsense".
Which allegations exactly are "utter nonsense"? That there were dying fish floating on the surface? that the Atlantic salmon in their pens have red spots on their bellies? That the water was clear with no sign of an algae bloom? Or that the place stank of dead fish?
Why can't anything be straightforward and direct with this industry? This is not the behaviour of good corporate citizen who is using BC waters to dump all its waste. Tens of thousands of farmed salmon are dying, it is completely fair and natural that the Canadian public would want to know why.
Perhaps Mr Vike will answer my questions today.
