Wild or Farmed? Battle It Out in the Salmon Haiku Duel!


November 22, 2004


Harbour Publishing, The Tyee online newspaper and Taku Wild Salmon are wading into the Wild vs. Farmed salmon debate and inviting the public to share their views on the issue by entering our haiku contest.

Pen your own verse and you could win some fabulous prizes, including the grand prize of a collection of BC books by Harbour Publishing and a premium package of Taku Wild Smoked Salmon! The nine runner-ups will each receive a copy of A Stain Upon the Sea: West Coast Salmon Farming and a package of Taku Wild Smoked Salmon. In addition, all entrants will be entered into a draw with a chance of winning one of 30 copies of A Stain Upon the Sea.

Our illustrious judges—Patrick Lane, Lorna Crozier and Lynn Coady—will assess haikus in terms of poetic merit, not politics, so whatever your views, please join in. For full contest details visit The Tyee.
