Minister Coveney has stated that he will make up his mind on the salmon farm issue before the summer
please sign the below petition against the salmon farms
they will do nothing but destroy Galway Bay and if it gets in there first - no doubt all 10 farms will go ahead up and down the west coast
these things are massive, polluting, provide no real local jobs and fulfill one purpose really - that is the dividend of the investors - the fish are even unlikely to be sold on the Irish market, most ear marked for China
you can say good bye to all fishing in these areas - not just the salmonidshttps://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/IR ... Y/?wiWKHib

Done, but I suspect this one is going to Europe to be sorted out as the Min has already made his decision....

the chinese made the decision for the government last year before xmas - think it was 4 years in negotiation
Tue Mar 03, 2015 2:38 pm
Done - but it looks like it could do with a few more signatures, any way of publicising this locally?
Tue Mar 03, 2015 2:51 pm
Have to stand up against this one, just done it.

Thanks all - have it up on facebook on any pages that are remotely associated with the bay - i know the lads on shop street have 1000s collected, as they have a stand there every Saturday in the centre of Galway
keep spreading the word
Tue Mar 10, 2015 6:44 pm
in the 2 weeks and a half another 400 signatures added, going well
Mon Mar 30, 2015 4:06 pm

Shore based contained salmon farming is the way to go. Even the 'great leader' promotes it ! See http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/picture ... me=3316205

Yes ! Just a risk that BIM may apply for a smaller version of the salmon farm after the election. Smaller could become larger with time. However, good for now.

yes - id say the current ones will be stuffed to capacity also
wish the new eu stipulations covered measured used in salmon production to prevent disease etc. and not just feed to qualify for "organic" salmon - such a poor prodcut but believed to be healthy and sustainable by most of the population
