The Salmon People and the fish farm industry are waiting for two big announcements: one from the Federal Court and the other from the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans. Each group is worried the decisions won’t go their way.

The first time the high court evaluated the minister’s decision on fish farms – the industry won, and the consultations on transitioning fish farms out of the water by 2025 – started all over again.

And this time, everyone wants to be heard. But something odd happens – the First Nations and the fish farms seem to be getting more of the minister’s time.
