“Hungry Eye” piece on farmed salmon.
“Hungry Eye” piece on farmed salmon. Salmon farms in Maine are subject to a strict permitting process and must undergo testing twice a year. Still, debate surrounds the process as opponents argue about the health risks surrounding plant-based proteins that are fed to the fish as well as some of the environmental costs of the process. Sebastian Belle of the Maine Aquaculture Association and Andrew Lively of True North Salmon Company of Canada which owns almost all of the Maine farms counter the arguments against farmed salmon, pointing to practices such as pen rotation, testing for contaminants, and care to prevent overcrowding.
