Vancouver—Nearly 1,000 people crowded Government Street on Saturday at the end of a 500-kilometre walk to protest fish farms, which participants blame for killing B.C.’s wild salmon. Surveying the crowd, the largest local rally yet in support of protecting wild salmon runs, biologist and activist Alexandra Morton said it’s proof the cause has turned mainstream. But the B.C. Salmon Farmers Association says there is no evidence sea lice are becoming resistant to controls and insists lice from farms aren’t to blame for declining wild salmon runs.
