In the early 1970s, a group of scientists researched how to make more food for the growing population of the world and designed a new salmon that was fatter and faster growing. Thus the beginning of a new industry: salmon farming. The industry spread from coastal Norway to Scotland, Canada, Australia, Ireland, Chile, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and the United States, and made salmon more affordable and available to a wider market. But as farmed salmon spread so did their unintended consequences.

On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with Simen Sætre, co-author of The New Fish: The Truth about Farmed Salmon and the Consequences We Can No Longer Ignore.
