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

Don Staniford started this petition to ASC and

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.
