Boycott Feedlot Salmon Petition
Open net salmon feedlots have the potential to cause serious damage to the marine environments on Canada's east and west coasts.
Open net salmon feedlots have the potential to cause serious damage to the marine environments on Canada's east and west coasts.

We must not stand idly by while our coastal communities and natural environments are threatened by an industry that claims to be responsible and sustainable, yet operates with no barrier to protect surrounding ocean environment, is an incubator for disease and parasites, and starves one ocean to pollute another, among other concerns.

You can demonstrate your concern by boycotting the purchase and consumption of farmed salmon, telling your supermarket not to bring the product into your watershed, educating your friends about the issue, and voicing your concern to government.

By adding your name to this petition you agree to boycott feedlot salmon and are sending a clear message that you support wild salmon and want to see the end of open net salmon feedlots in Canada.

Please sign this petition and share it far and wide.

The Salmon Feedlot Boycott
Make no mistake: salmon "farms" are large-scale fish factories.

These feedlots operate as intensive livestock grow-outs in the ocean with up to a million fish raised on a single site. Factory salmon are fed colourants to turn their grey flesh pink and given antibiotics and de-lousing drugs to fight disease and parasites. There are no barriers for disease, viruses, bacteria and lice between salmon feedlots and the surrounding environment.

Salmon feedlots never shovel their manure, it all pours into rich coastal fishing grounds.

During salmon feedlot mass mortalities, over 325 billion infectious viral particles can spread into the ocean per hour. Though salmon feedlots in Canada frequently experience mass mortalities from viruses, not enough is done to protect wild fish.

Massive lobster kills have occurred with salmon feedlot sea lice drugs found in them on Canada's east coast.

For those concerned, the time to act is now!

We have reached a tipping point and cannot stand idly by while our livelihoods and natural environments are destroyed by an industry that claims to be responsible and sustainable, yet among other concerns:
  • is a feedlot industry with no barrier to protect surrounding ocean environment;
  • is an incubator for disease and parasites; and
  • starves one ocean to pollute another.
A federal inquiry reported serious concerns that wild fisheries may be irreversibly harmed by industrial salmon feedlots.

Together, we will stand up for wild salmon, lobster, and all that rely on the resources being destroyed by industrial salmon feedlots.

Join Canadians from coast to coast and take action to send a message to big corporations and government: remove salmon feedlots from our oceans and the migratory routes of our wild fish.

BOYCOTT feedlot salmon.
