This report examines the economic rationale for shifting the environmentally unsustainable open-netcage aquaculture industry (implicated in disease transfer, pollution, harm to wild fish populations and a global net loss of fish used in feed) towards a more sustainable, closed-tank model. This report was a joint project of the David Suzuki Foundation, Conservation Strategy Fund, Friends of Clayoquot Sound and the Raincoast Conservation Society.
