If some new story breaks and sales collapse the companies would change things over night. Food production and politics go hand in hand .

    Control the food and you control the population. Monsanto are well on the way to being in control of global food supplies with their genetic modifications that require applications of their chemicals to germinate and then to 'set fruit'. Once those crops outnumber 'naturally' set crops, the world food resource will be controlled by them - which is why the survival of bees and other pollinators is so vital. These people are playing a long game.

    Just watched it and theirs a lot of unanswered questions in the program and a lot lot of chemicals used to treat disease that get dumped in and washed away pretty quickly i guess by a tidal currant before they can do there job . But realistically isn't it time these farms were moved from open waters in land where fresh sea water could be pumped in from the sea chilled if needed to control temp filtered and exposed to uv filters to kill off parasites before the water been returned to the sea through more filters removing any harmful waste . medications etc. Yes it would cost a lot money to set up and im guessing the ponds/ lakes would need to me pretty large and deep but at least there would be control of whats entering the sea and maybe give the wild fish a chance to recover .


    Lets face it if they can rear rainbow trout in concrete tubs for the supermarkets and fish farms then im sure salmon could be done the same way

    Couldn't agree more.
    Surely there would be fewer fatalities with better control of sea lice resulting in a higher yield which would in time offset the initial costs.
    Seems like a no-brainer to me.
