When Washington state Sen. Kevin Ranker tried about a decade ago to roll back open net-pen farming along the coast there, he couldn’t find a sponsor for a bill, let alone shepherd it to the governor’s desk for a signature.
Open-water fish pens in the traditional territories of British Columbia’s First Nations are threatening wild salmon. And if the salmon disappear, so will a 10,000-year-old way of life.
Last month, a pen in Washington State holding hundreds of thousands of fish broke, sending swarms of silver Atlantic salmon swimming to the south and north. As you’re no doubt aware, Washington State is not on the Atlantic. Now, these invasive fish have been reported as far as 150 miles away in Canada.
You may be familiar with the Big Buck Hunter bonus level where you pump a few dozen rounds into salmon flopping out of the river while grizzlies look on. This is not an especially good bonus level (I prefer the one with the basketballs or the electric eels), but it would be much worse if you needed to shoot…
In health updates that absolutely no one wants to hear, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are warning that a tapeworm that was previously believed to only exist in fish from Asia has been found in Alaskan Salmon. Hold on to your guts.
Here’s a lovely view of a salmon run in Lake Iliamna, Alaska. Just being able to see the rivers filled with salmon from up above is incredible, it’s just packed to the brim with fish. It’s also pretty cool to be able to track all the different areas the salmon are in, from the mouth of the river to the gravel beds.
After decades of indecision, the Food and Drug Administration has finally approved its first genetically modified animal as safe to eat. Welcome a fast-growing GM Atlantic Salmon to your plate.
Hey, you, what’s your favorite fish? Oh, salmon, that’s cool. Except that “salmon” may not have been what you think it was at all. So what was it?
Here’s your feel good story for the day. NOAA researchers have captured what are probably the best aerial photos of wild Killer Whales ever and are here to explain how the images demonstrate an incredibly strong, collaborative family bond.
“This has got to be one of the best days of my Presidency,” Obama tells the camera shortly before Bear Grylls feeds him a nasty old piece of bear-ravaged salmon he found beside a river in Alaska.
It’s officially summer, which means the salmon are running in Alaska’s Katami National Park which means the local brown bears are poking around there to eat them which means the BearCam is back up for the season. I just watched for like three minutes and I saw a bear!
Wild salmon are pink (or pinkish-orange, depending on geography) for the same reason flamingos are pink: their diets, which are heavy in krill and shrimp. But farm-raised salmon are fed a diet that renders them gray... or it would, if they weren't carefully "pigmented" to transform into more appetizing hues.
Hydroelectric dams block the migration of fish swimming the Columbia River, but one company thinks it has come up with a perfect, if slightly absurd, solution: a pneumatic tube that sucks fish out of the water and then launches them through the air.
If the salmon won't come to the ocean, then the ocean will come to the salmon. Well, not quite: Tanker trucks will take them there. Such are the extreme measures in California this spring, as drought forces major salmon hatcheries to funnel their fish into tanker trucks and ride them straight to the Pacific.
Fish tends to spoil fast, even when kept on ice. So to ensure that farm-raised salmon remain at peak of their freshness (read: still swimming) for whole trip to back to shore for processing, Rolls-Royce is building the world's largest mobile aquarium/meat wagon.
The number one reason most of us grab an unhealthy meal over a healthy one is convenience. Junk food is ready to be stuffed in your face, and when you're short on time, cooking is one of the first things to go out the window. Today we're going to show you three super simple, healthy, protein-packed meals you can make…
Shrimp fountains don't grow on trees, you know—nor do Ahi Tuna steaks, Fish McBites, or fried calamari. But that hasn't stopped an increasingly affluent human population from annually demanding more and more seafood. As a result, an estimated 85 percent of the ocean's fish stocks are now either fully exploited or…
You hear that? That's the sound of your afternoon plans evaporating. Alaska's Katmai National Park has teamed up with explore.org to bring you live, high-definition footage of brown bears hunting for salmon at sites throughout the park, and it's probably the coolest thing you'll see today.
In 2008, after what has been referred to as an "unusually severe storm," a Panama facility for genetically engineered AquAdvantage® Salmon lost its first commercial-size batch of fish. The entire batch—poof!—vanished.
I didn't know, but the Kurile Lake—in the Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia—is known for being the largest red salmon run in the world. People and bears go then to catch them, both on pictures and for eating.
