The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today's most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and stimulate civic life.
Over the past two decades farmed salmon has become a major source of seafood, outselling wild-caught salmon 4 to 1. This has led to:
• high demand for wild forage fish used to feed increasing numbers of farmed salmon,
• nutrient and chemical pollution in once-pristine marine ecosystems,
• the spread of parasites and diseases to wild juvenile salmon and
• extensive escapes of farmed fish into the wild.
The Salmon Aquaculture Reform Campaign works to raise public awareness of these environmental problems, and it coordinates activities with partners and allies in salmon producing and consuming countries around the world to encourage the salmon farming industry to adopt environmentally sustainable aquaculture practices.
Pew is no longer active in this line of work, but for more information, view the materials below and visit the Salmon Aquaculture Reform campaign.
