Alexandra Morton


Morton has lived with salmon farms, studied them, met their owners and done the science. Morton is a biologist, living in a remote archipelago on the west coast of Canada. Over the past 20 years, Morton has gone from welcoming the people in the salmon industry, to studying and publishing on the negative impacts salmon farming, to court actions and now a 500 km walk to inspire people insist on wild salmon. Simon Fraser University is awarding Morton an honorary doctorate of science in June 2010.
