Salmon Farm Science “touched a nerve” with Alexandra Morton

Salmon Farm Science definitely “touched a nerve” with Alexandra Morton in two recent blogs, Activist Alexandra Morton lies on national TV and Activist Alexandra Morton makes her lie even bigger

Alexandra Morton has taken to her Salmon are Sacred Facebook page and has even has posted a blog;

Who is calling me a liar? inviting her followers tojoin in the sleuthing” to uncover who is behind Salmon Farm Science.

We enjoyed reading the comment Salmon Farm Science posted on Alex’s blog and agree 100%

Hi Alex, it’s disappointing that you are wasting so much time trying to “out” the authors of our blog instead of explaining your lies, your deliberate misrepresentations of science and your dishonesty. Do you truly believe what you are saying? That is understandable. But it shows you are not interested in a real discussion, but in being right. The day you show true humility and actually admit that you’ve been wrong about things you’ve said about salmon farming is the day we will admit who we are and buy you lunch.

Meanwhile, mobilizing your cult army of clicktivists against us is amusing. Please continue.

Here are the links to the two Salmon Farm Science blogs. The comments posted on these two blogs are of interest, Salmon Farm Science and others do a great job responding to Alex’s “army of clicktivists”

Activist Alexandra Morton lies on national TV

Salmon Farm Science, May 12, 2014

CBS’ famous 60 Minutes program recently aired several segments about salmon farming, and they were actually pretty fair.

The show was a generally fair representation of salmon farming in BC. I especially liked how the segment showing the seafloor beneath a fallowed salmon farm showed the seafloor was crawling with prawns.

My only two concerns were:

1) Letting Alexandra Morton get away with a bald-faced lie when she talks about the ISA virus and says, “There’s nobody actually looking at the wild fish carefully.”

This is COMPLETELY false and it’s a shame 60 Minutes did not challenge her on this lie.

 Activist Alexandra Morton makes her lie even bigger

Salmon Farm Science, May 20, 2014

It would appear I touched a nerve with this post last week.

Annoyed by being caught in a lie, Alexandra Morton mobilized her followers to copy-paste this in the comments section:…

Salmon may be sacred, but they also make some people say stupid things

Salmon are Sacred is a group of self-titled “wild salmon warriors”. Their Facebook page claims to be a venue for like-minded warriors to have “serious, open and respectful discussions and information sharing associated with the impacts of open pen salmon feedlots on wild Pacific salmon.”

The page also states that the “Salmon Are Sacred Facebook administrator team will determine whether or not member requests are approved and whether a member is removed from this page due to inappropriate/offensive posting.”

Now, for the reality check:

“Respectful”? When discussing the work of  British Columbia’s lead fish pathologist (who maintains the following credentials – D.V.M., Ph.D., Diplomate, A.C.V.P.), the lead administrator of the Facebook page responded with:012414 Jim Wilcox



“Inappropriate or offensive”? Two posters recently posted the following violent and threatening comments:

012414 Gasoline


012414 Jim the battle heats up



012414 Dynamite




Administrators Wilcox and Ms. Alexandra Morton seem to be tacitly giving these threats of violence their approval by letting them go unchecked.  Authorities have been notified. The posters of each comment have not been banned from the site for breach of its moderation policy.
