Farm raised salmon die in cages at a Cooke Aquaculture operation near Baie d’Espoir

In a statement, the company said the farm has a total of about 550,000 fish, and estimates about 14 per cent of them died off, which would put the number at more than 70,000 fish. The company’s statement blames the higher than expected number of deaths on “severe winter storm events experienced over the past month.” Cooke said they think the deaths happened in two of eight cages on the farm, which is run by Cold Ocean Salmon Inc., a subsidiary of New Brunswick-based Cooke Aquaculture. >click to read< 07:28
