Fish farm comments wrong

Dear Sir:

You must be kidding! The recent column by Skeena Angler Rob Brown on fish farms  is in total error.

I am not in the fish farming business but the evidence produced by the Cohen Commission is much different than what Mr. Brown has written.

It is quite obvious that Mr. Brown did not follow the commission’s finding as they are presented and it looks like he did not even read them. As for his comments about other types of farming being filthy etc. His comments again show his ignorance about the basic principles of food production.

I have been involved in agricultural food production in various ways for all of my life, including time with the International Pacific Salmon Commission and seriously question what Mr. Brown knows that I don’t.

Mr. Brown, please pull yourself away from your computer long enough to get into the real world and see something firsthand.

You owe your readers an apology for misleading them and also an apology to all of the hard working and honest aqua and terra farmers out there.
