Hey Guys,

It's not only our politicians that now how to screw the pooch, so do the Canadians. Open Net Fish Farms are a real problem for our fish as well as theirs. Tak e the time to watch this video-

Wow that was truly horrifying, I am stunned not just by this, but it in my mind adds to the enormity all the problems we have trying to save what’s left of our native fish runs. Big business and politicians just don’t care like we do.

Thanks for posting that Josh, we need to keep people aware of this issue!

Alexandria Mortensen deserves our praise and support, what an advocate for wild fish. I only wish I had half her commitment and passion!

Thanks for that Josh.

A minor correction: Her Name Is; ALEXANDRA MORTON - and yes, she is an incredible human who has sacrificed her everything for this cause. you can donate at: http://www.adopt-a-fry.org/

HER BLOG CAN BE READ AT: http://alexandramorton.typepad.com/

Please pass this info along

I have known her since I was a child, and she has seen the destruction from pre-salmon farm days, to now, where the Orcas and many other species are dwindling right in front of her eyes. She is an artist and a biologist, who is now a full-time SALMON WARRIOR. She funds most of the legal work herself, and has volunteers, both scientists, researchers, and lawyers all pitching-in to not only uphold the laws of Canada, but to remove salmon farms from the migration routes of salmon. the issue is huge, and there IS something we can all do about it. stay aware, read, and sign petitions, and support grassroots org's. Thanks for listening. -Kyle

Thanks for the correction Alps, I figured I was butchering her name, spelling was never my long suit!

where are all the bunny huggers and fern petters when you need them? very sobering/depressing video. I am glad to see that at least some one is aware of the situation.
I think a more appropriate question would be, where are the rest of us?

Dude. Who the hell do you think is in that video? http://www.raincoastresearch.org/about.htm

She may not be from the insane left but I'm sure she hangs out with plenty of "bunny huggers" and "fern petters". When it comes to environmental issues those folks are typically leading instead of following and/or resisting. Think about it.
