Escape from fish farms threatens wild populations

About 790,000 salmon and trout escaped from Norwegian fish farms last year becoming a great threat to wild fish.

Farmed fish are carriers of parasites such as sea lice, which infect wild salmon and other aquatic species.

Since these farm fish escape to rivers, they infect young wild salmon before they head off to the open sea threatening their immune systems, which are not yet fully developed.

According to Peter Gullestad, Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries, the low security in fish farms is "a criminal act that must be sanctioned the same as a hold-up or a rape."
