Salmon farms on their way out of the Discovery Islands!

Hello Liz,

Great news! Today government took the first step in getting salmon farms out of the path of wild salmon. Its decision to phase out salmon farms in the Discovery Islands over the next 18 months is a crucial step in saving wild salmon. It gives the juvenile fish migrating past the Discovery Islands a better chance of surviving.

This could not have happened without supporters like you!

Thank you for speaking out to protect Pacific salmon and ocean health. The government has heard us! Let's celebrate this decision for wild salmon populations that sustain people and wildlife from the Pacific coast to the far reaches of the Fraser River in the B.C. Interior.

Recovering salmon will continue to require your support, so please stay tuned in the New Year!

Thank you again for supporting wild salmon. Together, we're making a difference.
