Hybridization of Escaped and Wild Salmon in NL

A pivotal scientific paper has just been published, indicating that escaped salmon have cross-bred with wild salmon in 17 of 18 rivers sampled on the south coast of NL.

This paper clearly indicates the heavy impact on wild salmon that is caused by in-water salmon farms.

The peer-reviewed scientific research was published in NATURE COMMUNICATIONS

The paper is OPEN and can be read online or downloaded as a pdf by anyone interested.
