Dear Friends and Customers –
British Columbia has been blessed with a resource that is vastly important to the
culture, history, economic and environment of our province. For several years
we’ve listened to the plight of one single woman, Alexandra Morton, biologist
and friend of Wild Salmon urging DFO scientist and policy makers to
acknowledge the concerns regarding open net fish farming in the pristine waters
of our B.C. Coast.
Now – she is urging the general public to give her a ‘strength in number’s’
approach to being heard. This is a gentle, passionate, persistent and intelligent
individual who has devoted her adult life to preserving nature’s balance on the
B.C. Coast. She cannot fight this battle alone. She needs our help. $50,000 is
urgently needed ASAP for the ‘Adopt-a-Fry’ Program.
Please log onto her website (www.raincoastresearch.org) and the Adopt-A-Fry
fundraising program (www.adopt-a-fry.org).
These sites are loaded with information.
If you’re still in doubt ask yourself this:
“Are fish farms worth the risk?”
To assist Ms. Morton in her efforts to save our Wild BC Salmon … this is our
Iron Maiden Seafoods will have a tip jar at our sales tables for your
Iron Maiden Seafoods has pledged to donate one half of all delivery
charges, plus all delivery tips to the Rain Coast Research Society.
Iron Maiden Seafoods will continue to charge a ‘coin donation’ for all
plastic carrying bags at farmers markets. Proceeds go to Rain Coast
Research Society. Last year we collected over $200. Let’s triple the
number this year!
Should you decide to donate and wish a tax receipt, funds can be allocated to
Rain Coast Research Society (continued research & Ms. Morton’s salary).
Thank-you and Best ‘Fishes’!
