Letter – This salmon tastes fishy

I would never stop anyone from seeing a movie they might enjoy.

This salmon tastes fishy

I would never stop anyone from seeing a movie they might enjoy.

So, if you really want to watch the documentary Salmon Confidential, please do and bring popcorn. But people should know the plot in this movie failed to impress experts at the Commission of Inquiry into the Decline of Sockeye Salmon in the Fraser River. It is disappointing activists choose to misrepresent an important business in B.C.; one that employs thousands, is our largest agricultural export and provides seafood for a growing population while helping to conserve wild salmon stocks. I remain confident there are many viewers who retain their ability to think critically and want to test the accuracy of this film’s claims. To learn more, visit SalmonFarmers.org.
