When you hear “factory farm” you probably think cows and pigs and chickens.
But there’s another type of factory farm, one that pollutes our oceans and produces one of the most toxic foods in the world: industrial ocean fish farms.
Industrial fish farms endanger human health and the environment. Yet their numbers are growing, to meet the growing demand for salmon in both grocery stores and restaurants—and because the Trump administration is aggressively pushing to expand this dirty industry.
Fortunately, Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) has introduced the “Keep Fin Fish Free Act,” a bill that would place a moratorium on granting commercial permits for industrial fish farms in federally controlled ocean waters.
