In my opinion, salmon farming is an industry which is out of control and, aided by governments, is damaging our marine environments to a point which the extinction of species is a very real possibility. This page just shows what is happening around our coasts in an attempt to get people thinking about the filthy, dangerous business of salmon farming.

Here in Ireland, the salmon farmers are untouchable. The Irish government do not care about wild fish stocks, they never have nor do I believe they ever will. Votes are the only criteria for any Irish politician and the small body of people who care about the marine environment don’t pack a big enough political punch.
