Mr. Staniford said the lawsuit is an attempt by the company to silence its harshest critic.

“This is an example of the Norwegian government trying to shut down free speech,” he said, noting that the GAAIA website was taken offline after the Internet service provider was advised of the lawsuit by the company.

Mr. Staniford said he hopes to have a new site up soon, and that he will use it to continue his battle against fish farms and to raise legal defence funds.

Mr. Staniford, who is based in B.C., said he formed GAAIA recently to go after fish farms internationally, and that the organization “has supporters globally.”
