OFCO, along with many other environmental organizations, has signed the petition urging Governor Inslee to stop the expansion of Atlantic salmon net pens. Oregon, California and Alaska have already banned Atlantic salmon net pens in order to protect the native fish and health of the waters. Cooke Aquaculture, an Atlantic salmon net pen conglomerate, is currently seeking a permit to install an extensive salmon net pen in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, east of Ediz Hook.
Wild Fish Conservancy, the author of the letter to Governor Inslee, is asking for individuals to sign onto the letter also. You can add your name by visiting this link.
