I reached out to one of the world experts on salmon farming (Dr Alexandra Morton) based in BC Canada to ask her opinion of the potential impact which as you can see is potentially extremely alarming. I have personally worked as a professional aquaculturalist and I can not agree more that the leak into the wild environment of exotic pathogens is inevitable and is merely a question of ‘when’ not ‘if’.
