Abstract
  • As world farmed salmon production has grown, so has the intensity of the debate over salmon farming. Critics have characterized salmon farming as environmentally, economically and socially unsound and irresponsible. This paper argues that underlying much of the salmon farming debate is a far broader debate over many of the market-oriented institutions which govern or influence economic production and consumption in market-based economies. The rapid growth of the salmon farming industry may be considered a textbook example of how these institutions lead to innovation, investment, growth and economic change - as well as accompanying economic, environmental, social and political concerns. To varying extents, explicit or implicit in specific critiques of the salmon farming are broader critiques of the global market economic system and globalization. The paper reviews several examples which illustrate different fundamental economic and political issues underlying the salmon farming debate. It is important to recognize these fundamental issues underlying the farmed salmon debate, and the economic and political assumptions underlying normative conclusions about salmon farming.
