We think the idea of a fish farm on the Au Sable is a bad joke, the punchline being that it will provide a couple of jobs, as opposed to the hundreds that rely on a healthy wild trout fishery. The technology does exist for it to be done cleanly. But the permit the state granted won’t require it be done cleanly at all. Not even close. It will instead be run like a backwoods septic system. Look at it this way, if a cabin owner wanted to install a septic system like the fish farm has, they would NEVER get permitted. This double standard is striking.
