A group called superheros4salmon has created a petition to stop farmed salmon being certified as “sustainable”, “environmental” and “responsible”.

WWF, the Aquaculture Stewardship Council and Marine Harvest (the largest salmon farming company in the world) are attempting to green-wash salmon farming via ‘Standards for Responsible Aquaculture’, says the group

The petition says that the proposed standards fail to address welfare and food safety issues and allow for the use of toxic chemicals, antibiotics, unsustainable feed, escapes, non-native species, GM feed and the killing of marine mammals.
