Farmed fish in the B.C. coastal region has been a matter of controversy for long, and now it gets a celebrity voice to stand up against this long contentious practice.
The 49-year-old erstwhile '#Bay Watch#' actor turned social activist joins hands with renowned environmental activist David Suzuki for convincing people to chose wild and natural grown Salmon over farmed products with their joint social campaign named 'Operation Virus Hunter'.
"Salmon farms keep pens in the ocean, where the fish swim in their own feces, and breed disease and sea lice that kill wild salmon, threatening the orcas' ability to feed I learned about the fish farms and how devastating they are," Anderson said in an interview.
In a press conference held by 'Sea Shepherd Conservation Society' in Vancouver, Anderson recommends people to stop consuming farmed salmon and make a better choice instead by going for naturally grown salmon.
"I love as a fellow Canadian I'm able to shed light on a local atrocity that has solutions."
"The bottom line is that fish farms in the oceans are polluting the oceans. Please take this into your own hands and simply say no to farmed salmon." She concluded.
