Scott Landsburgh, chief executive of Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation, welcomed the Aquaculture 2030 report by the Vision 2030 group:
“On behalf of the members of the Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation (SSPO), I welcome this report which brings an additional voice to the growing demands to see aquaculture fully recognised as a strategic part of the Scottish economy.
“The report not only endorses a positive future for the sector, but also highlights the key challenges to growth which SSPO and the industry have been struggling to overcome during the past decades.
“I very much hope that the Scottish Government and Marine Scotland especially will implement the recommendations which could bring about a step change in the development of this buoyant sector.
“The prize, as outlined, is significant and the challenge now is to deliver it.”
