Consequently, Salmon Scotland will now represent organizations working in every part of Scotland. Although, salmon is only raised in five key geographical locations in rural Scotland: Shetland, Orkney, the north-west Highlands, the Western Isles, and Argyll and Bute.

Regarding this move, Tavish Scott, Chief Executive of Salmon Scotland, said: “Our role is to speak for and champion the interests of people and businesses across Scotland’s farm-raised salmon sector. Farmers care for their fish and produce a healthy, nutritious product that is increasingly popular around the world,”.

Finally, he recalled: “Together, we deliver more than 10,000 jobs in every part of Scotland. Also, we generate millions for the local economy. Everyone in the sector working hard to deliver a sustainable and low-carbon future for Scottish salmon.”
