Salmon Scotland is committed to offering transparent and open access to information about one of Scotland's most successful food sectors. It publishes regular data on the opportunities and challenges faced by the county's salmon farmers but also provides additional insight regarding the sector's impacts including economic benefit and environmental sustainability.
The Scottish salmon farming sector takes a long-term view of ensuring that fish health and survival improve and that Scotland can lead in fish health status.
The farmed salmon sector contributes over £640 million to the Scottish economy every year through direct, indirect and induced impacts. It turns over in excess of £1 billion worth of Scottish salmon at the farm gate providing direct employment for over 2,500 people in farming.
