So, I guess posing as the world's largest Aquaculture company and then saying things against them on the web will have its pitfalls. I am not surprised that they responded quickly, they have a lot to protect. The cost of moving your operations from ocean based to land based is very prohibitive. But once they move it all onto land, there is very little cost difference. It may mean saving an important species that is part of us. Think about it.
