Salmon Aquaculture in the Courtroom
October 4, 2021
All of the salmon farm corporations affected by the closure of Discovery Islands farms last December are now suing the federal government to have the decision overturned. Having lost all interim court challenges attempting to put fish back in the pens, they will now occupy another 5-6 days of the Court’s time in October, arguing their judicial review applications. Living Oceans and several other groups are represented as intervenors by Ecojustice, who will argue that the decision was not only within the Minister’s discretion, but required in order to comply with the precautionary principle.
