Yesterday, the Suzuki Foundation responded to Krause's article, denying her claims and accusing her of being a shill for the salmon farming industry.
Today, Vivian's response to Suzuki is a highly detailed rebuttal including:
... You note that I used to work in the salmon farming industry. That's true. That was in 2002 and 2003, eight years ago. I also did two short consultancies in 2007. For those, I was paid $10,000 and $7,750, respectively. As I've said many times, since July of 2007 I have not worked for the salmon farming industry in any paid capacity. In January, I was the keynote speaker at the Nova Scotia Annual Aquaculture Conference but apart from my airfare and hotel costs, I was not paid. Over the years, I have also tried to support the Aboriginal Aquaculture Association in small ways but I have not been paid.The debate score (scale of 0-10): Suzuki - zip, Vivian Krause 10.
To be clear, if anyone has reason to be an adversary of the salmon farming industry, it might be me. After all, I was fired.
Keep up the great work, Vivian.
