One of Cooke Aquaculture's three commercial Atlantic salmon farms near Cypress Island in Deepwater Bay collapsed August 20, 2017, releasing an estimated 160,000 to 263,000 farmed salmon, along with tons of debris, into Puget Sound. The collapse spawned an outcry that led the state legislature and governor to enact a controversial ban on non-native fish farms in state waters, phasing out existing operations by 2025.
