CANADA - Friends of Wild Salmon will be putting ads in major newspapers across B.C. to press the province not to allow further development of fish farms in northern waters.

The ad campaign is being launched on Saturday by the coalition of native organizations, community groups, and sport and commercial fishermen. The launch will be part of the coalition's Salmon Summit 2, to be held next week in Terrace.

The ad campaign comes at the same time that the Kitasoo are lobbying for additional sites to help them maintain aquaculture in their village.
