The Green Party of Nova Scotia calls for a ban on open pen aquaculture. South Shore communities are clear, demanding protection for their coastal waters. Thomas Trappenberg, the leader of the provincial Green Party say constituents must be respected.
“There is direct evidence that open pen aquaculture poisons ocean waters. Fish waste, disease, and contamination from medicines destroys traditional fisheries, on which South Shore families depend.” said Trappenberg. “The community has spoken: no open pen fish farms here.”
