Formaldehyde use in Scottish salmon farms


A fidra report on Formaldehyde use in Scottish salmon farms

Formalin, an aqueous solution of formaldehyde, is one of the most commonly used parasiticides in aquaculture. Although it degrades rapidly in water, concerns remain
over its impacts on both target species. To minimise the potential risk of chemicals treatment in aquaculture pose to the environment, Fidra are calling for greater transparency between the salmon farming industry and the public, stringent statutory requirements and increased emphasis on following best practice.
