Agriculture and Environment: Salmon

Better Management Practices: Continuous Improvement

A process of continuous environmental improvement, similar to the management systems that are endorsed by the ISO certification and standards processes, would help to make salmon aquaculture less of a concern (Whoriskey 2000).

Such systems, however, require written procedures, measurement of impacts, and ongoing monitoring. Thus, systematic, timely, and effective monitoring is required not only for each net cage or even each farming operation, but also for larger ecoregions where cumulative impacts of the entire industry may be significant.
