Fish Kill Alert

Some 77,000 salmon have died at a Cooke Aquaculture farm on Newfoundland’s south coast, the first to be reported under the Newfoundland and Labrador’s stricter public disclosure laws. In a statement, the Canadian firm said 14% of fish died at the 550,000-fish farm near Baie d’Espoir, Canada, putting the total number of dead salmon at about 77,000. Cooke blamed the latest die-off on “severe winter storm events” over the past month.
