    Salmon in Canada , When staying with friends in Vancouver , Deep Cove bay , maybe Dennis knows it? Nice area.

    Anyway my wife's cousin referred to Salmon as Canadian chicken, I think the reference is related to there is loads of it.
    To be honest I cannot remember the last time I had fresh wild Salmon. I suppose if you go to a proper fishmonger, if you can find one that is you may get it. We have a guy calls into the village every Thursday selling fresh fish from his van but even his Salmon is farmed. It is easy to spot farmed from wild the strands of white fat = farmed.
    I can remember as teenager into and my 20's standing on a bridge watching hundreds of wild Atlantic Salmon queuing up waiting to head up the Glenarm river to spawn. Autumn was the best time , this year never saw a one . Got speaking to a local fisherman , few and far between now he says. He netted a few a moth or so back but he said they had escaped from the Salmon farm just of the coast a bit from Glenarm. He blames a lot of it on farmers using fertilisers and run off into the rivers.

    Hi Lewis, fist place I lived in Vancouver, Was deep Bay. Lovely area.
    Big problem with farm salmon. If any escape the enclosure, they contaminate the wild salmon.
    Not sure if I have mentioned this one before.
    Some fisheries genius back east, thought it a good idea to transfer Atlantic salmon to our west coast.
    What a mess that made of our fish.
    Never heard if he was ever brought to task about that.
    No doubt not, as he worked for the feds.

    Added to #78 .. Graham think it was that last exam where I heard one of the candidates had written on one of the papers , “ God only knows the answer to this question , I don’t “ Merry Christmas. When the marked papers came back from London , they had a written remark from the marker “ God gets full marks, you get none , Happy New Year “. So another one bit the dust , hope he enjoyed his Xmas at sea . Cheers JS
