Normal Team Piscatorius Flyfishing
teampiscatorius We apologize this sad photo. But during the last few weeks we had some huge numbers of escapes from fish-farms in the fjords around our home. Salmon and rainbows. These fish outnumbers our population of wild salmon many times in our area. Our salmon and seatrout are already on the limit of extinction here in the southwest coast of Norway, mainly because of the big concentration of fisheries in these fjords.
We (volunteer anglers) struggle each day, trying to fish out these farmed fish from our ecosystem, but we will never take out big enough numbers to give the wild fish their territory back. The government doesn't help us, they let the fish farm industry do whatever they want. There are no controls on the fisheries from the authorities, there are no rules, and no guidelines. The fishfarm industry are allowed to do whatever they want. They do not help us catching their own escaped fish, there are no rules who imposes them to do so. So we are in this alone. Norway is famous for it's Atlantic salmon fishing, soon there will be no more wild Atlantic salmon in our river, only escaped salmons, that is already the situation in many of our rivers.
The rainbows we have caught after the escape have been send to laboratory for testing. The results are scary, many different health damages discovered, also PD a virus which is transmitting all salmon fish species, also to our wild fish. These fish was ment to be eaten by people, in Norway and the rest of the world.
Fish farming is the second biggest industry in Norway, after our oil. We want the fisheries on land, where all problems can be handled and controlled, and there will be no danger for escapes, spreading salmon-lice or virus to wild fish.. Help us get all the Norwegian fishfarms in closed thanks or on land.
Stop buying Norwegian Salmon or trout. They are stacked with medications and diseases, and not even close to what a Norwegian Atlantic Salmon really is. Please share these words. Make this stop! #farmedfishonland #lerøy #lerøyseafood #leroy #leroyseafood #fishfarm #fishery #fjordnorway #fjordsofnorway #nrknatur #NRK #tv2 #vg #vgtv #vakmag #Norway #Norge

suburbfarmer New aquaponics system with seedlings planted. We are going to stock a handful of barramundi to get the system cycled ready for a big trout season. #aquaponics #barramundi #trout #growyourown #fishfarm 1d
  •   pearlspage Where abouts are you? 1d
  •   naturalisteducation @suburbfarmer any problems using the galvanized steel for the fish? Someone I follow said there may be a problem with the zinc in the steel. I don't want to use plastic and would love to use steel if that is possible. 1d
  •   suburbfarmer @pearlspage I'm in Western Australia 1d
  •   suburbfarmer @naturalisteducation You are correct. The zinc in common galvanised steel will kill fish in 24hrs or less! These tanks have food grade plastic coated on the inside of the steel sheet. Its permanent and not like a liner. 1d
  •   whiskandwhiskey Love this set up 1d
  •   naturalisteducation @suburbfarmer thank you for your info! That could have been a costly mistake. 1d
