Dear Norway: Help Save Canada's Wild Salmon

A new documentary by filmmaker Damien Gillis shows how current practices used by Norwegian-owned companies operating in Canadian waters continue to threaten wild salmon and the iconic species that feed on them, including grizzly bears, bald eagles and killer whales. The film, "Dear Norway: Help Save Canada's Wild Salmon," also features testimonies from local scientists, fishermen and First Nations chiefs detailing the dangers posed by open-net fish farms to British Columbia's biologically diverse ecosystems.

The film was recently screened at Aqua Nor, a biannual international aquaculture trade show, where the Pure Salmon Campaign called upon King Harald of Norway to insist that Norwegian-owned companies operating salmon farms in Canadian waters adopt strict environmental standards to protect British Columbia's wild salmon populations.
