Re: Fish Farm Issues

“No clams left, beaches are dead.”

Dear Editor,

The Fish farm (net pen) sites have closed down the following clam beaches where Fish Farm sites were before and moved out of the site – no clams left, beaches are dead.

Harb ledown Island (Mound Island Bay), Midsummer Island (Potts Bay) clam beach between Cedar Island and Midsummer Island, Port Elizabeth beach, Bonwick Island (Carrie Bay), Monday Anchorage – Between Two Island – Tracey and Mars, Bonwhick Island (Betty Cove), Eden Island Bay, Broughton Island (Deep Harbour), Broughton Island (Sir Edmund Bay).

Note: Fish farms (net pen) in mainland will have major problems for clams and clam beaches. Marine Harvest may have 550 employees, but don’t reside in Mainland where First Nations communities live, neither provincial and federal jurisdictions, industry, or share holders.

Note:

“Aboriginal Rights are Forever, as long as the sun shines, the grass grows, and the rivers flow for the wild salmon.”

The Royal Proclamation October 7, 1763.

The sun is still shining.
