Mr Stephen Hey

What about pesticides/antibiotics/the lice problem/escapes and genetic pollution/a myriad of viral and bacterial infections - all of which are a serious threat to wild salmon? Pelletised feed is often from unsustainable sources threatening other predators and piscivorous seabirds such as puffins. Seals are only one environmental side effect of companies like Marine Harvest, there are many reasons to boycott farmed salmon, this is a side show in comparison!
