The Nature Speaks, Water Speaks—Pay Attention video was created for the fight against the genetically engineered salmon farm on Lake Erie. This video was submitted as the Michindoh Aquifer, St Joe and Maumee Rivers, Lake Erie and the Great Lakes comment to the Ohio EPA AGAINST the Genetically Engineered Salmon Facility in NW Ohio. YES, the waters have a voice in this project….or at least they should. People from communities in each of these watersheds felt that the waterways themselves should be heard in the public comments regarding this harmful project—the humans did their best to listen to the waterways and verbalize what they might say. We hope you will share this video with others, especially people you know in any of these watersheds.

Nutrients from the waste from the Salmon Factory Farm will worsen Lake Erie’s toxic algae and genetically engineered salmon escaping from the facility would wreak havoc on the Great Lakes ecosystem,” said Mike Ferner of Lake Erie Advocates.
