Join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s science research vessel Martin Sheen on a peaceful flotilla, as we venture north to Okisollo Channel in support of wild salmon.
Wild salmon populations of the Pacific Northwest are in critical decline due to the impact of open net-pen salmon farms along wild salmon migration routes. Sea Shepherd is working in collaboration with coastal First Nations, scientists, and marine wildlife experts to shine a spotlight on the devastating impacts of open net-pen feedlots through Operation Virus Hunter.
