Video: Push to shut down Nova Scotia open-pen fish farms continues - CBC News

The Healthy Bays Network, an environmental group, says a federal government decision made last week to ban open-pen fish farms in B.C. should be implemented in Nova Scotia, where the regulations surrounding aquaculture are enforced by the provincial government.

The group held a press conference in Dartmouth on Thursday with a panel of speakers including representatives from the Atlantic Salmon Federation, Tangier Lobster, Ecology Action Centre and Protect Liverpool Bay. Joel Richardson of Cooke Aquaculture called the event "a farce".

Its ironic that the whole world is in transition against the traditional old model of open net-pen fish farms and we here in Atlantic Canada appear to be oblivious to that. - Stewart Lamont, Tangier Lobster
