Stop the Certification of Farmed Salmon as "Sustainable" and "Responsible"

      Tofino, Canada

Please help stop farmed salmon being certified as "sustainable", "environmental" and "responsible". 

WWF, the Aquaculture Stewardship Council and Marine Harvest (the largest salmon farming company in the world) are attempting to green-wash salmon farming via 'Standards for Responsible Aquaculture'.

However these standards fail to address welfare and food safety issues and allow for the use of toxic chemicals, antibiotics, unsustainable feed, escapes, non-native species, GM feed and the killing of marine mammals. 

Please sign this petition and a letter opposing farmed salmon standards.

      Farmed fish is one of the worst foods we can eat. Many other countries are not allowed to eat farmed fish and the ones who farm the fish export their products. It is unsafe and hazardous. Try eating farmed salmon for dinner one night and then a fresh wild caught one the next. You can feel the difference in your body and that is something no one can object to.
