I agree with the relationship you made between domestic salmon and their role in the continuing decline of wild salmon populations. I love how you also brought up the idea of leaving nature to its own devices in terms of genes and work on boosting the natural population. On the other hand, though, I’d argue that leaving nature alone would only intensify our issues. Work should be done to preserve our environment. Farming fish is a great way to allow natural populations to recover from years of fishing and still meet our consumer demand. The issue is with escapees, so why not focus on limiting escapes, instead.
