Act on Justice Cohen's concerns: 

“DFO has not completed research into the effects of diseases and pathogens from salmon farms on wild Fraser River sockeye. Nor has DFO done any research into the cumulative effects on sockeye of having multiple salmon farms sited on their migration route. In sum, there are insufficient data (almost no data) to evaluate cause and effect relationships, and insufficient data to look for correlations between fish farm factors and measures of sockeye health such as productivity.“ Vol3 p. 24

"I accept the evidence that a devastating disease could sweep through a wild population killing large numbers of wild fish without scientists being aware of it." (Spoken in press release & in report)

Thanks Sabra for posting this, hopefully the new act will get these Fish Farms out of our ocean before it is too late.
