Atlantic Salmon federation takes environment Minister to Court over proposed grow-pens for 700-million salmon Description: The Atlantic Salmon Federation wants to know why Newfoundland’s Environment Minister took a pass on conducting an environmental review of the largest-ever salmon farm being proposed for Placentia Bay. More than 19 rivers that lead to the Bay are utilized by wild Atlantic Salmon – a species in this region already in trouble. The Federation would like a study conducted to determine the potential impacts of growing out 700-million salmon in Placentia Bay so people can make informed decisions, and isn’t that what balancing the economy with the environment is all about?
