The best way to protect wild fish is to buy wild fish. The idea that we are running out of fish and must use industrial farming practices to bolster our seafood supply is simply wrong. If our fish come primarily from industrial farms run by distant corporations, we are harming our wild fish populations through water pollution, fish escapement and depleting forage fish for feed. When we are not buying and eating wild fish and placing a high value on their importance to feed our people, we also lose generational independent fishing families and local coastal communities and cultures that both depend on fishing and place a deep value on sustainable fishing practices and wild salmon habitat restoration.
Our wild fishing industry depends on the cleanliness of our waters and the health of our fish. Losing the value of wild fish from clean waters leaves corporations free to pollute the water and destroy the ecosystem of the rivers through deforestation, mining, and other harmful industrial practices. If wild fish no longer hold value that is when corporations will control our food system.
