Moving Glacier

Fish farming is a massive scale industry. This boat is pumping Atlantic salmon smolts into a pen in the Pacific, in a location in Tribune Channel that government promised us there would never be salmon farms (see MAPS section) Strangely this vessel has no license visibly displayed. All vessels transporting salmon, or any species of fish should have a license displayed according to the laws of Canada.

BC Supreme Court ruled that it is the same ocean inside and outside the pens, thus we don't know if the fish farming companies actually own their fish once they put them in the ocean pens. Marine Harvest has appealed this decision and is taking me back to court in hopes of making it clear who owns their fish.
