July was another busy month for news despite being the peak of summer. Oddly enough Pamela Anderson dominated the most read stories on IntraFish.com;She is nowthe face of Sea Shepherd's eco-war against the salmon farmers in British Columbia.

The month also saw the launch of IntraFish's exclusive five-part "Antibiotics in Salmon" series exploring the use of antibiotics in the Chilean salmon sector, and what can be done to address it.

Elsewhere, Pacific Andes may have come to the end of the road after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States, and tracking the fallout from that also proved popular among readers.

In the UK, Tesco decided to delist a number of John West products at the end of the month, while Pete Ward, CEO of Young's Seafood, announced plans to step down.

The argument over whether the industry needs so many eco-labels was also popular once again, while Norwegian salmon prices hit record highs over the month.
