Dear Advocate,

Did you know that four salmon farms near Bainbridge Island are allowing untreated fish waste equal to 830,000 city residents to flush directly into Puget Sound? Now plans are in the works to allow fish farming in our oceans!

Open-ocean aquaculture pollutes waters with antibiotics, chemicals and waste; threatens biodiversity; and instead of protecting wild fish, actually causes a net loss in protein. (Five pounds of wild fish are needed to make feed pellets to produce just one pound of farmed fish!)

Learn more about ocean fish farming and take action to stop it! »
