BREAKING: Canada's Fisheries Department to shut 15 salmon farms off B.C. coast to protect wild fish

DFO MINISTER JOYCE MURRAY today announced a decision to shut down 15 open pen salmon farms around Discovery Islands.

"Murray says the Discovery Islands area is a key migration route for wild salmon where narrow passages bring migrating juvenile salmon into close contact with the farms.

She says in a news release that recent science indicates uncertainty over the risks posed by the salmon farms to wild salmon."
