Cooke-Aquaculture-600x450“US NGO the Wild Fish Conservancy has filed a lawsuit against Cooke Aquaculture over the escape of more than 300,000 salmon from Washington state operations on Aug. 19-20.
It sent a letter to Cooke on Aug. 24 providing 60-day notice of its intent to file a citizen suit under section 505 of the Clean Water Act, it said in a press release.
“As has been widely reported, Cooke Aquaculture presided over the near-complete structural failure of a net pen facility located in Deepwater Bay off of Cypress Island over the weekend of Aug. 19 and 20, the failure of which has resulted in, and continues to result in, the discharge of farmed Atlantic salmon, dead fish carcasses, and massive amounts of debris among other pollutants,” it said.”
