"False economy at fish farms in Canada, Chile, Norway and Scotland most affected by poor fish husbandry, high stocking densities, increasing mortalities."
Excerpt: "Recent economic analysis of salmon farming reveals that the industry has produced negative externalities worth in the region of $60 billion ($47 billion usd) since 2013. It shows how poor fish husbandry, including measures such as high stocking densities, are a false economy as they have led to increasing mortalities on salmon farms. These represent high opportunity costs for salmon farmers. In addition, unsustainable practices such as the use of fish in feed, local pollution and poor fish welfare create social and environmental costs that are not generally accounted for."
