From BC Sockeye Salmon to Egyptian Pigs

Here are three articles that I think are interesting and relate well to our topics.
The first two get clumped together because they are both about sockeye salmon. The first, talks about a new study that proposes fish farms could be spreading disease to wild salmon and causing their decline on the west coast. The second, explains how this years odd boom in returning salmon could be caused by a volcano eruption in Alaska that fertilized the ocean. Could we maybe fertilize the oceans ourselves?
The third is about how the egyptian government's killing of all pigs caused a massive organic waste problem last year.
