  1. I have never heard of Vivian Krause or David Suzuki, and I don't know much about the merits or demerits of farmed salmon. However, I notice that she cites the Competitive Enterprise Institute as a source. CEI is a right-wing think tank heavily funded by corporations. I do not consider them a reliable or independent source of information. See this article on CEI on Sourcewatch:
