You raise a good point, I hadn’t thought of the idea of the “competition” for food. To take food from the ocean for farmed fish is taking it from salmon themselves, but isn’t that what fishermen are already doing? Herring season is huge, there are boats everywhere trying to catch as many herring as possible, but herring is also a food source for salmon. I can see how this is a problem, and it’s interesting to think about especially because the though never crossed my mind.
