When you farm and breed 'wild' animals in intense and unnatural environments it is only a matter of time until you get disease and parasites:

They've been having trouble for years regarding diseases and salmon, bred in unnatural conditions, should be banned.

But then consumers would have to face up to the fact that over fishing has decimated supply and prices would go up. And if there is one thing British consumers don't like is having to pay a true and proper price for products they enjoy to excess.

Ban salmon to sell, treat it the same as ivory.
Only eat salmon if it's been caught by yourself or anyone else that hasn't financially benefited.

The difference in taste, colour and texture between farmed and wild salmon is phenomenal. Farmed salmon is incredibly fatty. It's a cost choice, though - no different to choosing those horrible 'two for £5' battery farmed chickens ahead of corn-fed, free-range ones, vastly superior in taste and texture. Why should chicken and salmon be the vestige of the well-off?

Asl, if that is what it costs that is what costs. Maybe people would have to eat less chicken - there wouldn't be cheap sandwiches or burger shops. People eat too much meat anyway, from an environmental and food resource point of view, so correcting the market by removing externalities would lower demand to a more suitable level.

And if some people cannot afford any meat or dairy, then that is a problem of poverty wages and lack of basic income/welfare in our economy. Would be up to the government social policy to fix.
