John Volpe, environmental studies, writes Op-Ed on damaging effects of fish farms

(November 20, 2017) - John Volpe wrote an opinion piece for Sunday's Times Colonist on damaging effects of salmon farms after the recent escape of farmed Atlantic salmon into Pacific waters. Volpe points to the loss of genetic diversity caused by farm-escaped Atlantic salmon breeding with endangered wild Atlantic salmon on the east coast as a cautionary warning about fish farms. TC
