Presented by: : Dr. Alexandra Morton

When: 19 October 2011, 7:00 pm with reception to follow

Where: Potter Auditorium, Rowe Management Building, Dalhousie University


Salmon farming is expanding rapidly in Canada and elsewhere, and has replaced fisheries for wild salmon in some regions. Environmental concerns around this industry include pollution, exotic disease introduction, and the amplification and transfer of other pathogens to wild salmon. Renowned marine biologist and environmental advocate Alexandra Morton will discuss the sometimes conflicting roles of government, scientists, citizens and industry in the struggle to regulate environmental impacts, and to maintain healthy and productive salmon populations in Canada.
