Salmon, How Sacred Are They to You?

Salmon Are Sacred

Salmon have a great sense of smell, if they could smell a Hero they would award Alexandra Morton with the honor of “Salmon Hero”. No one wakes up on any morning and says I am going to be a hero today. Alexandra Morton is a Reluctant Hero of the Salmon, as a marine biologist she wants to be out on the water watching the whales. The Salmon have called to her, for 22 years she has been trying to get the Salmon feed lots off wild Salmon migration routes. The Salmon, Alexandra, First Nations, bears, and the Eagles all need our help.

The Salmon are dying from viruses that have been introduced by the Salmon farms owned and operated by Norwegian companies. Some of the viruses have been 100% fatal to Salmon. For more info on the viruses go to

What can you do ?
Stop buying farmed Salmon.
Write to your council and Mayor, “Please put a moratorium on Farmed Salmon in our Municipality.”
Talk to your grocer about not supplying Farmed Salmon
A $100 donation will send one fish to a lab to be tested for the ISA virus.
Write letters to anyone you think can help.

Salmon Are Sacred
Karen and Alexandra, The Ok/Shuswap Federal NDP organized a tour for Alexandra, I went to the one in Enderby at the Seniors Center. Well done a good number of people turned out and the chocolate zucchini cake was exquisite.  I gave Alexandra the envelop with a cheque for $100 from the Ok/Shuswap Green Party of Canada. It will send one Salmon to a lab to be tested for the ISA virus.

The poster

This is the cover of a hand out with graphs and more info on the three viruses killing Salmon.

This is the back page of the handout, love the picture of Alexandra shopping for fish, to be tested.
I stopped eating Salmon when they started to decline, as a vegetarian it was easy, I also felt the bears, eagles and First Nations should have first choice.
I can not imagine a world with out Salmon. They give so much to this earth and are integral to the ecosystem. Please help the Wild Salmon. No more fish farms on our oceans.
