EU Version: No Jobs Here: Why Industrial Fish Farming's Promise to Boost Local Economies Falls Flat

EU Version: No Jobs Here: Why Industrial Fish Farming's Promise to Boost Local Economies Falls Flat

Ratings: (0)|Views: 11 |Likes:
The open water aquaculture and salmon industries tout fish farms as an opportunity to create jobs. Given current economic struggles worldwide, any potential for a new industry to increase job opportunities is hard to dismiss. Viable, gainful employment is badly needed. Unfortunately, Food & Water Watch found that the jobs created by fish farms are unstable, in some cases undesirable, and are very few in number related to the number of fish produced. In fact, the trend in the industry has been to cut jobs to increase “efficiency," and to abandon communities if better sites arise elsewhere. Moreover open water fish farms can threaten previously-existing jobs in tourism, recreational fishing and commercial fishing.
