To be fair, this federal government has already gone further than any other to remove factory fish farms. Recall that back in February 2023, the former minister of fisheries, Joyce Murray, doubled down on her decision to keep disease-spreading salmon farms out of the Discovery Islands, despite an unfavourable court decision last year. This took guts like we’ve never seen from any minister of fisheries before. After this second decision by the minister, factory fish farm companies are once again suing her. And once again, Watershed Watch will likely be joining our allies in going to court as intervenors represented by EcoJustice, to fight the companies and defend B.C.’s wild salmon.
