Hidden Fishy Agenda

From an Op Ed in the National Post one can find the following statement

At the University of British Columbia, scientists found that Vancouver-born infants of well-educated mothers are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids. The infants’ eyesight was compromised, their brain development may have been affected. This situation is not helped by the fact that Canada’s most trusted environmentalist has been giving pregnant women faulty advice to avoid farmed salmon. The truth is, farmed salmon is higher in omega-3 fatty acids than any other fish.

If one followed the research protocols of the anti-fish farming community, would this finding merit a hypothesis that the environmental lobby fundraising industry is engaging in a process to impair the thinking ability of future generations?
