BCSFA STATEMENT RE: SEA SHEPHERD SOCIETY CELEBRITY CAMPAIGN
The BC Salmon Farmers Association is responding to today’s activist campaign launch, this time featuring Pamela Anderson and the Sea Shepherd Society. The Sea Shepard Society says they are going to travel up the BC coast over the course of several weeks, stopping at various salmon farms to “conduct audits”, which will be done in a “non-aggressive and non-harassing manner”. B.C. Salmon Farmers are concerned about the aims of this voyage and campaign. Although they have reinforced that they will be “non-aggressive and non-harassing” when approaching farms, the Sea Shepherd society has a long history of doing the opposite. Farming companies place great emphasis on the health and safety of employees, and the health and wellbeing of their animals.
