Phil... In '05 I traveled on a friends yacht from Anacortes WA, by Campbell River, then through Johnstone Straight and ended up in Port Hardy on Vancouver Island. It was a wonderful trip that produced some fantastic memories. One of our stops, was on an island (sorry I can't recall the name) where that woman with the curly white hair in the video lives. In fact, I met her, talked to her for a while, and even bought a video to support her cause. At that time, her main concern was the sea lice concentration under the nets. I believe she was the first to bring it to light. In any case... you can believe me... she is not the kind of person to carry an agenda against farmed salmon nor is she the kind of person who would try to distract peoples' attention from environmental issues. People that live on islands think in terms of community. Agendas gain little traction where there is limited audience.

Environmental issues may be a bigger contributor, but that doesn't mean that we should allow ourselves to be singularly focused and ignore other factors.
