Alexandra Morton is a field biologist and activist, who has done groundbreaking research on the damaging impact of ocean-based salmon farming on the coast of British Columbia.

She has co-authored more than twenty scientific papers on the impact of salmon farming on migratory salmon, founded the Salmon Coast Research Station, has been featured on 60 Minutes and has been key to many legal and protest actions against the industry.
