And this is what a salmon fish farm looks like. Doesn't look too good, huh? In an effort to minimize the amount of space used in and the impact on the environment, these farmers have restricted the wiggle room! This results in lowered food quality and some disease being spread. Oof.
This is generally what a salmon looks like, notable for its reflective scales.
It's clear that salmon don't plan on growing the population again any time soon.
In 2014, the population fell like a rock to 1,432.
Chinook salmon populations have recently dropped from from 11,000,000 kilograms to a disconcerting 2,000,000 kilograms.
The population of adult Chinook salmon is at a disturbing low of 54,200.
With the major population decline combined with the health risk of eating farmed salmon, eating it is definitely a no-go.
