The Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) 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.
Over the last five years there has been a strong growth in Scotland's seal population with Marine Scotland estimating there is at least 132,000 living in the country's coastal waters.
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.
