Cohen Commission Scientist Accused of Avoiding Salmon Farm Research


Read this report from on a heated exchange at the Cohen Commission this week between Alexandra Morton’s lawyer, Greg McDade, and Oregon Sate University scientist and Inquiry scientific panel expert Dr. Michael Kent.

“McDade demanded Kent explain why the scientist didn’t include
information in his report to the commission about the transmission of
sea lice from open net-cage salmon farms to wild salmon stocks,
specifically sockeye.” (Aug 24, 2011)
