Please accept the following comments on behalf of Friends of the Earth, Center for Food Safety, Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, Ocean Conservation Research, and Recirculating Farms Coalition, and our hundreds of thousands of members and activists located throughout the West Coast, to raise our alarm over recent proposals that would advance industrial aquaculture in and near the state. 1 As detailed below, we object to any agenda that furthers industrial aquaculture production based on the established history of negative environmental and socio-economic impacts, and we urge the Pacific Fishery Management Council to assert its unique authority and expertise, and demand to be integrally involved as these policies develop.
