With Cooke's interest in Mariculture and Aquaculture for the Pamlico Sound, I found this expose interesting-


Salmon Confidential is a new film on the government cover up of what is killing British Columbia’s wild salmon.  When biologist Alexandra Morton discovers BC’s wild salmon are testing positive for dangerous European salmon viruses associated with salmon farming worldwide, a chain of events is set off by the government to suppress the findings.  Tracking viruses, Morton moves from courtrooms, into BC’s most remote rivers, Vancouver grocery stores and sushi restaurants.  The film documents Morton’s journey as she attempts to overcome government and industry roadblocks thrown in her path and works to bring critical information to the public in time to save BC’s wild salmon.  The film provides surprising insight into the inner working of government agencies, as well as rare footage of the bureaucrats tasked with managing our fish and the safety of our food supply.

I saw this in person 2 years ago fishing on the Horsefly river B.C. dead salmon full of eggs, saw their wildlife officers cutting open dead ones, I have photos of the fish and eggs on the bank. By the time a problem like that shows up here the damage will probably be more than our strained fisheries can stand.

"Salmon Confidential is a new film...."

This documentary was actually shot in 2013, after Alexandra Morton had been working on the problem for years.  Which makes our acceptance of the same practice, by the same company, in Pamlico or any NC waters, all the more egregious. The only thing that has improved is the industries ability to $ell the practice to our legislature.
Search Youtube for Alexandra Morton salmon.

McCrory sold the state to Cooke.  Cooper has strengthened those ties.

Hope they both go down as being defeated at least partly due to angry recreational fishermen.

Where is the NCFA rant on this?

They are constantly claiming the problem is being caused by water quality and development issues.

I'm old enough to remember when they didn't even do that.

They claimed there was no problem at all and it was all a figment of our imagination!!

One of Downeasters favorites was flounder were plentiful, but didn't bite hooks anymore.
