This is a huge moment in the fight against salmon farming in open sea pens in Icelandic waters.

Fourteen chefs have quit the Icelandic National Culinary Team in protest over a sponsorship deal the National Chef’s Club made with a salmon farming company Arnarlax.

The chefs who have quit the team in protest argue that the deal flies in the face of the team’s mission to promote only products of the highest quality, that are produced sustainably, and in full harmony with nature. Arnarlax farms salmon in open pens in the ocean.

(Please notice that in the news story it says that twelve chefs quit but the right number is fourteen.)
