Domesticated salmon certainly seems to a sort of saving grace. Paul Greenberg mentioned that “Every year three billion pounds of farmed salmon are produced… three times the amount of wild fish harvested”. Offhand, that seems to take a lot pressure off of wild salmon, but I think it’s important to consider the affects farms have on wild populations. For example, tamed and wild salmon breeding, tamed salmon taking wild salmon resources only be unable to breed later on, and the pollution farms release into the rivers.
