   Washington House OKs Phasing Out Atlantic Salmon Net-Pen Farming

House lawmakers Wednesday passed legislation that would phase out Atlantic salmon net-pen farming.

The bill, EHB 2957, waters down a bill passed earlier this month by the Senate. That bill ends net-pen farming of Atlantic salmon as leases to operate the farms from the state Department of Natural Resources expire. The last of those leases expires in 2025.

While the House bill says the Legislature intends a phaseout, it also says it intends to revisit the issue “once additional research becomes available.”
