Chewed through the side of pen.

VOCM reports that authorities are attempting to recapture around 8,000 fish from a Cooke Aquaculture facility at Long Pond, Newfoundland, Canada.

The escape was caused by otters that chewed through the side of the pen.

Fisheries Minister Derrick Bragg confirmed the escape.

Bragg told the publication that Cooke doesn’t use wire mesh for inland pens but expects them to update their plans to do so.
