Salmon Farming Firm Accused Of Misleading Locals On Plans

A salmon farming firm, Wester Ross Fisheries, a subsidiary of Mowi Scotland, has been accused of misleading locals in Loch Broom, Scotland, about plans to install a large feed barge at their fish farm. Residents claimed they were initially told there were no such plans, but it was later admitted at a public meeting that the intention had always been to add the barge.

INDEX

1. In the marine waters of the Northwest, these orca whales prey exclusively on fish—and not just any fish: salmon, and preferentially Chinook, the biggest salmon in the Pacific. In this, these orcas (sometimes called Southern Residents) have plenty in common with some of the other longtime native residents of this place: the Lummi Nation.

2. In the Lummi language, the local orcas are called Qwe ‘lhol mechen.

3. When the Lummi first came to this Douglas fir and cedar cloaked land and its glacially carved bays and inlets, the Southern Residents were here to greet them.
