I am deeply worried about Salmon farms in Galway Bay
No only is it Polluting and tampers heavily with Nature but it also
damages World famous Galway Bay
Nature loving tourists who love Irelands natural beauty
will abhor this hugely damaging business ,Its a No Brainer
Ireland and its Natural beauty must be protected from Fish farms and other Unknowns

The only reason these salmon farms are reluctant to relocate to a land based farm is financial , and considering the amounts of money we are talking about here it would be better for all concerned if they did relocate to a land based system ,

This will only spread more diseases that are already known to have started because of the farms that are in use right now. It will only get worse with this crap idea. No need for such thing. The higher ups need to quite trying to push crap that destroys our natural resources and only gains money for higher ups.

We need to talk more about the bastards that want more money in their pockets and make our voices be heard world wide!!!!!!

Comment on NSFAS by Billy Gordon http://www.nosalmonfarmsatsea.com/#comment-834 Billy Gordon Sat, 16 Mar 2013 21:41:27 +0000 http://nosalmonfarmsatsea.com/?page_id=2#comment-834 IThis matter is causing me great concern. Our natural heritage is being dismantled by the politicians who were voted in by us. With no agenda agreed by their voters they have taken action that will ultimately result in the demise of our Salmon & Sea-trout.

As a boy, on holiday in Ballycastle, pier fishing for anything that moved, I was struck by the beauty of the silver fish that jumped in the sea. A local chap gave me my first sea-trout lesson. ‘They’re hard to catch and best fished at night’ ‘Use flies’ Intrigued, I turned up at the bridge at dusk, eager for information from the fishermen who were starting their sea-trout quest. With openness and I would imagine some amusement, they filled my head with tales of the majestic fish. Every night I went to the bridge and watched. As dusk crept in, I would shake with anticipation as I waited to catch sight of those big silver trout exploding out of the river. It was euphoric. Captivated in a timeless scenario, the hours melted away. My mother despaired, I was always late back to the caravan, devoured my supper in record time before disappearing again each evening. That was a long time ago now, a lot has changed. My childhood and early adulthood of daytime tree climbing recon missions watching hoards of silver fish, night times where the river bed was littered with fishermen and the river packed with fish are a distant memory. It saddens me that no generation again will experience the true raw beauty of an eco-system now destroyed. In 1984 I returned to Ballycastle to fish. There were fewer fisher men than I remembered, “not to many fish showing” was the typical retort from the anglers. That year I fished quite a lot and caught around 30 trout for the season. While that may sound like a reasonable catch for the present, I had often caught 30 a night only 5 years previously.
It wasn’t just me either, the river was awash with “it’s a bad run” from saddened fishermen. 1985 was worse again.
It was then I began to read stories about Salmon farms and sea lice infestations, I learned that Glenarm had built a Salmon farm around 1984. Was it just coincidence? I started to read about these farms and the devastation that they caused.
The demise has continued with locals in Ballycastle reporting that sea-trout are now a rare sight. Over the past 20 years I have fished there occasionally and caught one small sea-trout “not much bigger than a smolt” that was so heavily infested with lice that you could hardly see the fish.
I feel angry.
We exist as a collection of components which are isolated, yet connected, all of which are subject to change. Human beings are both responsible for the monitoring and caring for the planet while being dependant on nature to keep us. Every organism has its place, it’s purpose and it’s role within our ecology. Even the decomposing bodies of fish after spawning have an environmental effect on the ecology that the river depends on. All of us realise the delicate interdependence that each and every organism on our planet exists by. Do the law makers? Do the money makers?
The pursuit of profits by governments and companies has taken precedence over our responsibility to care for our planet, to tend to nature as it tends to us. Balancing audit books, fat cat wages with bonuses has become the priority. To hell with the consequences for future generations.

Like I said I am angry.
The people responsible should hold their heads in shame, guilty as they are for ruining our home, the earth, for monetary gain. They have no moral responsibility, no conscious or remorse for their actions. Little do they realise that this will have far reaching consequences, not just for angler’s, but for all of us. We are citizens of the earth. It has provided for us, now we need to provide for it.
So where do we go from here?
B.G.

Ireland surrenders its sea fishing rights to the Eu and now welcomes open cage salmon farms hence fails to do its duty under the Eu Habitats Directive to protect wild atlantic salmon.
Stop this crazy plan.
