In August of 2017, a neglected net pen failed, releasing more than a quarter-million diseased, invasive Atlantic salmon into the waters of Puget Sound (off of Washington state).
What happened next?
Local whales began starving to death for the lack of large wild Chinook salmon they need in their diet to survive.
And, three species—Chinook, orcas and steelhead—are currently listed under the Endangered Species Act.
