“Fish Farms Out!” – Fish farm opponents detained in protest at Victoria shipyard

Several people were detained at Victoria’s Point Hope Shipyard after illegally boarding a vessel to protest fish farms. Police received reports at around 7 a.m. that protesters had illegally entered the shipyard and boarded a vessel. Calling themselves “wild salmon defenders,” six protesters boarded the Orca Chief, a vessel reportedly used by salmon-farming company Marine Harvest to transport Atlantic salmon to B.C. fish pens. They then unfurled a giant banner that said “Fish Farms Out!” from the bow of the ship. >click to read<15:25
