LEGISLATIVE BAN ON OCEAN
"FISH FARMS" GOES TO GOVERNOR

SACRAMENTO-The Senate approved today and sent to the Governor's Desk SB 245
(Sher), legislation prohibiting aquaculture companies from producing salmon,
"exotic" finfish species, and genetically-modified fish in the ocean waters
of California.

"This legislation is designed to prevent development and operation of the
kind of industrial-scale fish farming that now exists off the coasts of British Columbia, Washington State, South America and Europe," Sher explained.  "These fish farms have been described as 'feedlots of the sea'
because of the tremendous environmental and pollution problems they cause. We don't need those type of operations off the coast of California."

Sher noted that farm-raised salmon in Canada and Europe routinely escape
from their ocean net pens by the thousands, competing for habitat with native populations and, in the Atlantic, interbreeding with wild fish.
"Without a ban on ocean fish farming, California's remaining stocks of wild
salmon would be in even greater peril if the federal government allows the production of 'transgenic' salmon for human consumption," Sher commented. "I am hopeful that other states and countries will follow California's
example by banning genetically-modified fish from their waters."

SB 245 implements one of the recommendations of the Pew Ocean Commission, which earlier in the summer, urged a moratorium on development of ocean, net pen aquaculture facilities.  Sher noted, however, that there are currently no commercial fish farming operations off the coast of California, other than for shellfish.  "If properly regulated, fish farming in 'on shore' and 'closed water' facilities, can provide an important benefit to society by
easing fishing pressure on wild fish populations, and providing the public
with alternative sources of seafood," Sher noted.

SB 245 was sponsored by the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen's Associations (PCFFA), and supported by the Institute for Fisheries Resources, The Ocean Conservancy, Sierra Club, the Center for Food Safety,
and the California Aquaculture Association.
