Fidra Briefing on Salmon Farming in Scotland: Increasing Transparency

There is evidence of extensive environmental impacts of salmon farming, but the exact nature and degree of these impacts is sometimes unclear due to a lack of data, reporting of data or because there is a lack of transparency and accessibility to that data

Our 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 and reporting, and therefore by default transparency, is needed to inform and drive action that will minimise the impact of salmon farming practices on the marine environment.
