Stop Killing Our Bay

On June 9th, 2012, the community opposed to open pen fish farming in Port Mouton Bay came together to protest. They meet at the government wharf in Port Mouton, a village in Queens County, Nova Scotia. Ocean Trout Farms, a branch of Cold Water Fisheries (Ontario), announced it was putting in 300,000 trout in an open pen farm just off Spectacle Island (site #835). Port Mouton Bay was slowly recovering from 15 years of open pen trout and salmon aquaculture following Cooke Aquaculture’s removal of farmed fish from the site in August 2009. Despite science that proves that this Bay is not suitable for open pen aquaculture and community and local government’s objections, fish farming is being reintroduced to Port Mouton Bay with the support of the NDP Provincial Government. Darlene Norman, Municipal Councillor; Bob Swim, lobster fisherman; and Ron Loucks, oceanographer, speak at the protest.
