SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Seafood News] - April 23, 2018

SEAFOODNEWS.COM by John Sackton - April 5, 2018

Mixed Bag of West Coast Ocean Salmon Seasons Set for Public Review

A proposal to farm more than seven million salmon in Placentia Bay every year received both praise and condemnation Tuesday night at a sometimes raucous meeting of more than 250 people in Marystown.
