    JAFFA

    Slang for seedless / infertile.

    Odd as the good Dr. Jaffa has an exceedingly fertile imagination.

    Perhaps he is really Dr Compost.....does this person exist ?
    Is it an automatic stooge ?
    Can one have one from Amazon to answer tedious enquiries etc?

    Feel encouraged?

    If any of you feel distressed or affected by any of the material in the following report please contact the RSPCA's 'make a complaint' service.

    ''RSPCA Defends Involvement in Scottish Salmon Farming

    The UK's Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) has defended its involvement in the salmon farming industry following recent criticism of the sector, noting that by working with aquaculture it had been able to do far more than if it had turned away.
    "As an animal welfare charity, the RSPCA is duty-bound to help improve the welfare of all animals and that includes salmon," it wrote.
    "That's why we haven't stepped back and have instead chosen to proactively work with the aquaculture industry to find ways to help improve the welfare of farmed salmon."
    Earlier this month, Lynne Sneddon, director of biovetinary science from the UK's University of Liverpool questioned the organization's support for the salmon aquaculture industry, which they described as normalizing "heavy-duty suffering".
    In particular, Sneddon pointed to the RSPCA's endorsement and certification of 150 farms in light of recent research suggesting that certain lice treatments can cause pain in the fish.
    In response, the RSPCA noted some of the improvements it has been able to implement by using its presence in the industry, including a reduction in seal shootings, making veterinary plans for salmon compulsory and providing salmon with more space at sea and in freshwater.
    "The standards the RSPCA set have been a catalyst for change throughout the entire salmon industry, not just on RSPCA-assured certified farms, with most farms now adopting these standards."
    "If it wasn't for the RSPCA choosing to work with the salmon farming industry these and many other significant welfare improvements would never have been made," the charity added in its statement.''

    In excess of 20 million fish died from disease and lice last year(40,000 tons of morts). The figures are so mind boggling that you almost become immune to them. But we can't let up. Pressure is mounting on several fronts and the campaign is gaining momentum. Please register your interest, every single person helps.I understand that a film with DiCaprio and Kate Winslet is about to come out featuring Scottish salmon feedlots, that might rattle the SNP.

    If the poor wee lumpsuckers were so successful at taking off lice don't you think they would show the footage.He gave it away at the end, so profitable....even more than many illegal ways of making money.

    It's a sad reflection on where we are that it has come to this. In bed with the salmon feedlots doesn't quite do it justice.The Atlantic Salmon Trust should be ashamed of themselves.
