Best fishes Project Principles for Responsible Aquaculture

Scottish salmon farming can significantly impact the surrounding marine or freshwater environments, in particular through using open net pens. Fidra’s Best Fishes project highlights the major environmental impacts, from use of chemical treatments to discharging fish waste products.

Increased transparency and traceability in the Scottish salmon supply chain is an important prerequisite for positive change across the industry.

A commitment to best operational practices is urgently required.

The broader environmental impacts due to plastic waste, the climate emergency and the biodiversity crisis need addressed in addition to the areas highlighted by the REC Committee, and parameters covered by current regulation.
