Fish/game farms should not exist. Proper management of what wild stock remains needs to be the answer.

Wild organic fish and game. No steroids, no hormones.


Pretty clear IMO

There are no steroids or hormones or genetic engineering with farmed Atlantic salmon, this is part of all of the misinformation out there.  People just latch onto someone's talking point about something else (beef, chicken, pork, pretty much all terrestrially commercially farmed animals) and stick it somewhere else.

Organic?  Have you seen what is found in the tissues of wild seafood? Antibiotics, depressants, birth control medication, mercury, PCBs, etc. none of which are intentionally given to them. I'd be very interested to compare a tissue sample of farm raised Atlantic salmon and a salmon from the Nisqually River to see which had actually "healthier" meat.

Let's face it, people like to eat salmon.  There is no possible way to manage "wild" salmon in sustainable numbers to feed (no pun intended) the demand for salmon. I would say that, like oil tankers, net pens should require a double layer of protection (netting).

Antibiotics contain steroid compounds.

Yellow mount is treated with antibiotics.

I don’t see where the confusion or misinformation is?

Antibiotics are not, nor do they contain steroids.  Antibiotic use in aquaculture, is, as far as I have been able to determine, regulated to only being used to actively treat a condition unlike the other farming where it can be used simply to help fatten up animals like chickens, pigs or cows.

Yes, yellowmouth is treated with antibiotics, so what?  You have not given any proof, just more misinformation.  Are you against farming animals of any kind? At least be consistent.....

And all of the pharma that is dumped into puget sound is disgusting.

This we can agree upon.

The topic is farmed Atlantic salmon. I have been consistent with the topic. I only offered my experience with farm raised beef as part of my background.

I can see we will agree to disagree on farming Atlantic salmon in puget sound.

Good day.
