Washington State's decision to kick Cooke's out of Puget Sound is being celebrated globally, rightfully so. And we are here for it, every historic word of it.
"Washington’s decision to end commercial salmon aquaculture will also serve as an important model that will be leveraged by communities and governments around the world working toward the same goal in their public waters. Wild Fish Conservancy is proud to be a member of the Global Salmon Farming Resistance, (on twitter here) a global alliance of organizations working together to protect marine ecosystems around the world from the commercial net pen industry.
All and all, today’s massive environmental victory demonstrates what is possible when the public unifies their voices and works together with the law and science on their side toward the shared goal of a healthier Puget Sound." - Wild Fish Conservancy
