Why Salmon Are Sacred
Alexandra MortonUnknown - 2014
This episode of The Green Interview features Alexandra Morton, a citizen scientist who has worked as an outspoken advocate for conserving and protecting marine species on Canada's west coast. In 2009, Morton launched and won a legal challenge in the British Columbia Supreme Court that forced the provincial government to hand over fish-farm management to the federal government. In 2011, she took the stand at an inquiry to investigate the 2009 collapse of the Fraser River sockeye runs. Morton links the collapse and the overall degradation of the wild stocks to diseases being spread by the salmon farms located along, and in very close proximity to, the migration route of the wild stocks.
