We appreciate some of you may have questions about how the Scottish salmon sector is responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

As a result we are hosting all of our news articles, fact sheets, comments and press releases relating to the crisis together in one section of this website.


As a sector our priorities remain; the safety and well-being of our farmers and workers, the welfare of their fish and the environment in which they farm, and ensuring we're able to maintain a steady supply fresh healthy food to UK consumers at this critical time.
