Code of Practice for responsible salmon farming

Salmon farming is at the heart of Scottish food production and is one of Scotland’s most important rural industries. Producing high quality salmon on the west coast and northern and western isles provides not just an internationally renowned food, but also a vitally important economic contribution to rural and national Scotland.

Salmon in Scotland is farmed to world class standards, including those laid out in the Code of Good Practice for Scottish Finfish Aquaculture (the Code). Importantly, the Code’s 500 check points, covering every aspect of Scottish salmon farming, are independently audited.
