Claims of bloody wastewater with piscine orthoreovirus flowing into Brown’s Bay are being denied by Brown’s Bay Packing Co.
In a new video posted on YouTube, the company says the statements made by salmon farming critics are simply not true.
It gives a brief unedited look at what is happening both above and below the water.
The video is a response to an activist’s video showing the company discharging blood effluent into the water, two years after originally bringing the issue to light.
Brown’s Bay says it has made a significant capital investment in a cutting edge water treatment system that went online in May.
In the same time period, its regulators modernized the permit process with strict standards.
