FROM WILD SALMON PEOPLE:
The New York Times reports on a second case of ISA – this time in coho salmon in the Fraser River system.
Brace, people. We have an ISA pandemic in BC.
In rivers, streams, and coastlines, people are collecting salmon samples and sending them for virus testing – because the government won’t do it.
And every time we test, we will find more positives of that virus. And more. And more.
Until the structure collapses under the weight of its own incompetence and corruption. We will see the end of a mode of governance.
DFO as an institution is finished. Large transnational fish farm corporations will flee the country in shame, leaving ecosystems in ruin. And the Province of BC will lose whatever may be left of its legitimacy.
It’s called the salmon revolution.
May the wild salmon survive this terrible, yet necessary, crisis.
