Boycott Campaign Against Farmed Salmon in Ireland

This is an awareness campaign targeted at members of the public and supermarket consumers who may not be informed about the truth behind the salmon they buy from supermarket shelves.

The salmon farm industry is a dirty, greedy and environmentally damaging industry to Irish Sea Trout and Salmon populations. 

99% of salmon stocked on super market shelves are sourced from salmon farms.

Farmed salmon products usually hide behind fancy packaging and unclear words such as Organic, Sustainably Sourced, Responsibly Sourced, Fresh Never Frozen, Sourced in Scotland, Ireland etc.

We believe the Irish public are being mislead when buying salmon products on supermarket shelves. We are calling for a complete Boycott on all supermarket salmon products and for the Irish Government to step up to the plate and examine ways of taking salmon farms off the Irish coast. 

We need your Help

1. To start the campaign we need funding to design and print 10,000 full colour double sided information flyers that will issue to supermarket customers outside supermarkets across the country. The more funding we get the more leaflets we can roll out.

2. Contact your local Cllr and TD requesting that you are not happy with Salmon Farms on the coastline and seek their removal.

The Facts
- New studies have found that sea lice from salmon farms can cause a 50% reduction in runs of Wild Atlantic Salmon

- Sea Lice from salmon farming have long been implicated in the collapse of sea trout stocks along the west coast of Ireland. 

- Dr Paddy Gargan commented that increased mortality of wild salmon due to the impact of sea lice from salmon farming can result in salmon stocks not reaching spawning targets or not being at favourable conservation status as required under the EU Habitats Directive. It is critical therefore that sea lice levels are maintained at a very low level on farmed salmon in spring and where this has not been achieved that farmed fish are harvested before the wild salmon smolt migration period.

- Young sea trout are forced to run the gauntlet of open-net salmon farms, where sea lice incubated in vast, unnatural numbers on farmed fish latch on to and kill wild fish.
