#AgainstTheCurrent campaign launched in Iceland

Help us spread the word: #AgainstTheCurrent is fighting to protect Iceland from uncontained aquaculture, a dirty and environmentally devastating form of fish farming.

Iceland’s Parliament is set to consider a bill that would give the world’s largest aquaculture corporations unfettered access to the country’s famously pristine rivers and fjords, with dire consequences for the environment and local aquatic life. But in true Icelandic spirit, environmentalists, business owners, and residents are demanding a stop to the bill, demanding a thorough environmental review and consideration of sustainable alternatives.

#AgainstTheCurrent seeks to reverse the trend of destroying nature to cheaply produce fish.

Tell Iceland’s Parliament to freeze expansion and to support sustainable alternatives. Sign the petition and spread the word!
