The most modern salmon farms use automatic feeding systems, operated from shore. The fish feed is blown through tubes that can be seen in the water in the bottom right of this photograph. The industry began just two decades ago with a large number of small operations. Today five Chilean and Norwegian companies control more than 75 percent of the industry. (Jeffrey Kofman/ABC News)
