On 20 April 2017 Reuters reported:
Atlantic salmon farming companies are designing huge pens to raise fish in the open seas in a radical shift from calm coastal waters where marine lice have slowed growth of the billion-dollar industry. The drive for new designs by Norway, producer of 54 percent of all farmed Atlantic salmon in 2016, will have to cope with ocean storms that can rip cages and free thousands of fish. Escapees disrupt natural stocks by breeding with wild cousins.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern science and business systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
Nets in coastal farms sometimes tear in storms, harming wild stocks from Scotland's Spey River to Norway's Alta River, and offshore farms will be exposed to far stronger winds and waves.
Last year, 126,000 salmon broke out of Norwegian farms.
'Escaped fish mix with the wild salmon - that creates problems with genetics,' said Ingrid Lomelde, of the WWF Norway conservation group.
