Fidra Briefing on Salmon Farming in Scotland: Increasing Accountability

Salmon farming causes negative environmental impacts, but the exact nature and degree of this is sometimes unclear due to the lack of reporting of data or a lack of transparency and accessibility to that data.

The Best Fishes project highlights the environmental impact of Scottish salmon farming, from the use of chemical treatments to the waste products of the fish. Increased monitoring, reporting and transparency, is needed to inform and drive action to minimise the impact of salmon farming practices on the marine environment.
