Read this story from the Vancouver Sun’s Cohen Commission reporter, Gordon Hoekstra, on the Province’s u-turn from opposing the release of salmon farm audit records.
“The environmental groups, including the Pacific Coast Wild Salmon
Society and the Raincoast Research Society, had argued the audit
information was important to make public because it would give more
insight into what types of diseases are occurring at salmon farms. Symptoms
of salmon diseases like marine anemia, sometimes called a leukemia, are
described in the audit data, environmentalist and commission
participant Alexandra Morton said Tuesday during a break in the inquiry.” (Aug 31, 2011)
