Salmon Fish Farms - A Look Inside the Brutal Reality of Fish Farming
An eye-opening look into the reality of Salmon fish farms. Industrial fishing of wild salmon is threatening the wild population and hurting other wild animals as well. Having said that, is raising salmon in fish farms a good alternative? According to this new investigation by Animal Outlook, the answer is a clear no.
In this valuable video, we can see the miserable lives of farmed salmon, who are undoubtedly one of the most miserable animals on earth. As if living in overcrowded and filthy fish farms is not enough, the poor fish suffer from parasites that eat into their flesh, and from additional extreme violence from the workers.
Starving the fish
Among various other standard practices, the fish are also routinely starved. This is done when the water becomes too filthy from excretions, which is a direct result of the crowded pools. In order to lower the levels of ammonia and nitrite in the water, the poor fish are simply denied food. In the video, we can see a worker explain how some starved fish mistake the eyes of fellow fish as food, as they anxiously swim in the filthy water in search of something to eat. As a result, some poor fish lack eyes.
The good news is, we can help bring down the number of Salmon and other fish who are born in fish farms. It's really as easy as not eating fish.
