Marine Harvest , based in Norway, raises salmon in pens in oceans around the world. <br /> They pay a plump dividend and the PPS has appreciated very nicely since i bought in. <br /> One of the posters here on the Hub pointed me to it and i'd like to thank him...Can't remember his/her name. <br /> I'm a bit ambivalent about farmed salmon. The operations have some negative environmental impact in terms of concentrated effluent and catching wild fish to feed them. Also, with the fish crowded together they are prone to various ailments and often must be medicated. <br /> Last, there is risk similar to any sort of farming operation. <br /> But folks gotta eat and your doctor says salmon belongs on your dinner plate.
