Vonandi hjálpa þessi orð sir David Attenborough sem flestum að átta sig á alvarleika málsins. Enn of margir sem kjósa að loka augunum fyrir stöðunni. Skv. frétt Daily Mail:
„Sir David Attenborough has accused fish farms of ‘threatening the very survival’ of wild salmon.
In a YouTube film to mark the International Year of the Salmon (IYS), the broadcaster and conservationist warns: ‘The survival of these astonishing fish is at risk.
‘Dams blocking their rivers, over-exploitation, pollution of the water, the spread of parasites, diseases, and fish escaping from open-cage salmon farms… all these, together with the inevitable effects of climate change, are threatening their very survival.’“
