DFO at AquaNor while Fraser Sockeye Crash:
Starring Canadian Fisheries Minister Gail Shea & the King of Norway
by Damien Gillis
Something is fishy in Norway. Damien Gillis confronts the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans at the world's biggest fish farming trade show in Trondheim, Norway.  Gillis asked Minister Shea how she responds to criticism of the optics of DFO being in Norway while the iconic Fraser River Sockeye run collapses, with possible links to the salmon farming industry. 
 
"I'm here in Norway to support" our aquaculture industry in Canada because it's a very important part of our economy," responded Shea.

What about WILD SALMON, the department's constitutional responsibility to protect it, and the piles of scientific evidence that suggest serious impacts from open-net salmon farms on the lynch-pin of BC's coastal ecosystems?
