The Swedish journalist and author, Mikael Frödin, was sentenced by the Alta District Court for having documented conditions at Greig Seafood’s salmon farm in Norway, Altafjorden. Frödin claimed that the act was a journalistic obligation, and that there was no choice but to swim near the cages. “The public must know how the industry affects ecosystems, how bad animal husbandry is and how this food is produced,” says Frödin.

Dreamstore has been pleased in the past to support the North Atlantic Salmon Fund (NASF) in its central mission; helping towards the buying of commercial nets to reduce the impact of commercial harvesting on migrating salmon stocks. This remains an essential action in the conservation of the species.
Orri Vigfússon was an indefatigable campaigner for the North Atlantic salmon, and the driving force behind the North Atlantic Salmon Fund’s nets purchase programme, and much besides. It was with great sadness that we learned of his passing in July 2017.
