Worldwide Protest Against WWF's Plans to Launch Aquaculture Stewardship Council

NGO News Release   Over 70 human rights and environmental groups from around the world express their outrage at the planned launch of the World Wildlife Fund's Aquaculture Stewardship Council. Their concern is that the proposed certification of industrial production of shrimp and salmon favours the vested interests of the aquaculture industry, without reflecting or taking into account the wishes of local communities and indigenous peoples who live alongside shrimp and salmon farms.
