The closer the salmon cages are located to the swim paths of the fish , the more the infestation of lice on the wild fish read full story / add a comment

galway / environment / press release Wednesday December 04, 2013 21:59 by Ireland Against Salmon Farms   text 2 comments (last - saturday december 07, 2013 22:05)   image 2 images
The destruction of Kilkieran Bay and Bertraghboy Bay by our state. Nine new cages for Kilkieran Bay and 5or 6 for Bertraghboy Bay in Connemara and more to be added. You could practically walk to them from the shore and this is an SAC and SPA.

Replacing salmon farms that never worked and got huge funding from Udaras na Gaeltachta in the past and this is a SPECIAL AREA OF CONSERVATION. It is a total disgrace. read full story / add a comment
