On 29 June 2017 Iceland Magazine reported: A newly founded Icelandic Wildlife Fund (IWF) intends to fight plans to dramatically increase the salmon farming industry in Iceland. A broad group of conservationists established the fund to fight for the protection of Icelandic nature, especially fjords and rivers which are threatened by industrial scale salmon farming in sea cages. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

The group plans to push back on lobbying by Norwegian multinationals which have plans for industrial scale salmon farming in the Westfjords.

Expansion of salmon farming in sea cages in Icelandic fjords threatens unique wild populations of salmon, Arctic char, and brown trout. Conservationists argue that farmed salmon which escapes the pens has a different genetic make-up than the natural species.

Sea cages are also breeding grounds for diseases which can infect natural stocks, while pollution from salmon farming threatens delicate ecosystems.
