Guysborough County’s Eastern Sportfish Association (ESA) has joined with APES and over 100 other organizations

open-pen farming has been operating, worldwide. A nearby example is our own inner Bay of Fundy streams – no more wild
Given the potential of the sport fishery to attract angling tourists to our Eastern Shore and the popularity of the
sport among our community residents, we must support a moratorium on salmon farms pending industry and government success
in dealing with a host of problems regarding wild fish, health issues, pollution, disease, genetic integrity, pesticides,
and risk to important commercial fisheries such as lobster, crab and other shellfish.
This issue is important to everyone,
so we urge all to see the film. It may forever change the way we see farmed salmon in grocery displays and the flyers!
