Blogger errs again in claims about salmon farms and compensation

Mainstream Canada 2013-11-26: DC Reid continues to get the facts wrong, and refuses to admit his mistakes, in his latest blog post about salmon farm compensation.

Despite being corrected numerous times, Dennis Reid continues to tell stories about salmon farming which are not based in fact.

I initially addressed his errors in a web post here last week, which you should read first if you are unfamiliar with this discussion.

I also posted on the website where the article was hosted, correcting further errors by Reid, but the site moderator did not approve the comment. The comment can be read here instead.

But this week, Reid persists in repeating untruths,,,

Blog post full of errors, ignorance about salmon farming and business

Columnist and poet DC Reid spends a lot of time these days writing about how he believes salmon farms are evil, but his opinions aren’t supported by facts.

 

Yesterday, Reid published a column accusing salmon farms of only making money when fish are diseased. This is ridiculous. Like every other form of farming, the way to make money in salmon farming is to produce a healthy, good-quality product in an efficient manner. And there is a lot of demand for our fish, because it is such good quality. That’s how we make money.

 

However, Reid misunderstands this basic concept, and makes the accusation that “Mainstream lost money when they didn’t have disease and made money when they did have disease – because you and I paid them.”

 

This is not true. It doesn’t even make sense… To read more click here.

Responding to salmon farming critics

 

Most of the criticism of salmon farming is based on outdated information, opinions and misinformation. We try and correct this wherever we see it so people can make decisions about farmed salmon based on fact, not fiction.

 

This page is Mainstream Canada’s blog section, where we post responses to our critics as well as information about the perceived problems with salmon farming. We believe salmon farming is an efficient use of our world’s limited resources, and that by constantly working to improve how we farm salmon, we are growing our fish in a responsible way.
