Supporting Salmon in Scotland

Recommendations on measures to address the interactions between the farmed and wild salmon sectors have been presented to the Scottish Government.

The Salmon Interactions Working Group has published its report which sets out more than 40 recommendations under 5 key themes including the regulation and licensing of fish farms, the collection of data and the commission of further research.

The Scottish Government will consider the report’s findings and set out next steps in due course, including whether some of the recommendations can be taken into account as part of the development of the Wild Salmon Strategy, a Programme for Government commitment.
