Canada's First Nation Wild Salmon Alliance calls for removal of the sea lice report (Canadian Scientific Advisory Secretariat Science (CSAS) report 2022/045) from DFO's website citing "research fraud". And for the lead DFO scientist to be suspended.

"if it remains on the record, it can be used in court by the salmon farming industry against any future decision the minister might make to close salmon farms. "
Calling the report out for being fraudulent matters. Removing it from DFO's website matters more.
