a member of the nam just nation and indigenous people from the west coast of canada she's now fighting against industrial fish farms like this one which raise hundreds of thousands of salmon in the region. glendale another demonstrators have set up camp in the middle of this farm and they say they've occupied it they want to send a clear message. down with this fish farm industry they have never had our permission to be in our territories and we've had enough for not now let them destroy our environment our daughters take our salmon away from us worked on these guys to get me to get out now. the occupied facility was built by a norwegian company marine harvest the largest salmon farming firm in the world.
3:22 pm
it has sales of around three and a half billion euros a year. company representatives refused to speak with us the industry is profiting from kind of his new trade agreement with the e.u. which is gotten rid of tariffs and increased production and exports. but environmental activists say aquaculture is damaging wild stocks of fish. when they migrate upstream from the pacific to reproduce they swim right past the fish farms and critics say that has spread disease and infection canadian authorities however play down the issue and say the cage salmon pose no threat to their wild cousins. when at lennoxtown actually put out into the ocean they go disease free they're raised in hatcheries a land based facilities and fresh water and we actually have a large suite of vaccinations that are given to the fish to guarantee that they're entering the water in a clean and healthy way that may be true but why are fishermen in british columbia
3:23 pm
catching fewer and fewer wild salmon many factors could be playing a role not least climate change or pollution but most locals blame the fish farms for their empty lines and nets. going into the season we knew it was going to be you were warned but i think it's even worse than what they say a project that would get isn't coming. good at all here and not only this area but up in the northern areas has been weak runs through. the first nations activists are planning to continue to protest the industrial agriculture facilities in their waters and say their rights are being violated even the coast guard is now involved and there's no end to the impasse in sight the nam gets say the only solution is for the fish farm to shut down. my colleague monica jones talked to jason toland about the deal he's minister counsellor at the canadian embassy here in bye then. provisional effect to do that means that

3:25 pm
there only some small elements of the agreement are in effect just one of those investment provisions for instance which were of the something that in some considerable discussion here in germany. those are not in effect as are for instance small things like camcorder rates or i'll give you don't want as an example but the bulk all substantive trade between our countries between her canada and the european union for instance with germany are no liberalized effectively receipts of lamentation provisionally jason poland there from the canadian embassy here in berlin apartment sharing apps providing a tourist boost to the dismal greek economy the number of rentals has more than doubled in less than a year the downside property prices are rising putting even more pressure on cash strapped locals. this neighborhood in central athens is just a few minutes walk from the acropolis residents and businesses hoping to cash in on the greek tourism have converted many of the apartments here and two holiday homes and they need toma helps manage such an apartment building.
3:26 pm
was without work for about one and a half years i found this to a friend of mine and that was a chance for me to have steady employment again and of course i did it for the money and to rejoin the labor market. but she also knows the opportunities come at a price for locals she herself has had trouble looking for a place to live. in regard to what was looking to find an apartment closer to my work and run something around here are some of them it was very difficult because most flats were either very expensive or are already rented short term through air being to be. given next i guess that the family cannot go. but just like in other markets the sharing economy here competes with established industry greek hoteliers complain the short term holiday rentals are unregulated and therefore have an unfair advantage. today it's very important to realise that we are not speaking
3:27 pm
about sharing economy anymore we're speaking about organized companies that are and tens or hundreds of flights. that make direct competition to hotels without having any specific specifications. by the government whether it's simple things i was doesn't slot have to have a fire extinguisher nobody says there's to be services like air b.n. b. are still relatively new to greece and legislation hasn't quite caught up yet for now demand for holiday accommodations is set to stay strong greece is expecting thirty million overseas visitors this year. nice doing business with you.
