In December 2021 SEPA launched a consultation entitled: Proposals for a risk-based framework for managing interactions between sea lice from marine finfish farm developments and wild Atlantic salmon in Scotland.

As the title suggests, the consultation sought to gather views on a proposed new regulatory framework surrounding potential interactions between wild and farmed salmon. The consultation closed on 14th March 2022. 

Salmon Scotland submitted a response to this consultation.  In the interests of transparency, our full consultation response can be found here:
