Environmentalist Fined For Raising Concerns About Carcinogens In Fish Farm

“In my view, Mr. Staniford was motivated by actual malice in that he was trying to build up opposition to Creative Salmon as a company that was attempting to obtain organic certification for its fish.” The defamation trial ran June, September, October and November 2006 in Vancouver’s B.C. Supreme Court. Creative Salmon launched the suit in July 2005 and alleged Staniford had defamed the company in June 24 and June 27, 2005 press releases. The June 24 press release questioned the company’s use of malachite green, an antibiotic and suspected carcinogen, on market fish. “If malachite green contamination is confirmed, this blows out of the water Creative’s claims to be organic and chemical free,” stated the release. “Creative Salmon must come clean on malachite green.” http://www.westcoaster.ca/modules/AMS/article.php?storyid=1518
