Open-pen net fish farms provide ideal conditions for the ampllification of parasites and diseases. This has led to widespread crashes in wild fish populations in the North Pacific and Atlantic oceans. These large-scale drops in wild fish populations have, in turn, impaired the food chain from fixing carbon in the oceans. This makes open-pen net fish farming a critical factor in ocean acidificaiton and the climate change crisis.

The Pristine Coast explores the public policy decisions taken and not taken that have given rise to this dilemma, amid a rising tide of concern among many who believe that sustainability and stewardship in the oceans are just as important as on land.
