Scottish Sea Farms

Scottish Sea Farms have been growing salmon for over two decades now, with company roots that go back more than twice as long.

With three freshwater hatcheries and 57 marine farms around Scotland's west coast, Orkney and Shetland Islands, Scottish Sea Farms is the country's second largest producer of premium farmed salmon by forecast annual volumes.

Thanks to the care and commitment of a 650-strong team and 700 local business partners, Scottish Sea Farms are now the go-to name of customers in over 24 different countries worldwide: from leading retailers to boutique sushi and sashimi bars.
