With the 2018 Year of Young People just around the corner we took a quick look at the career opportunities available in the Scottish salmon farming industry – and some might surprise you!
Many young people join salmon farming as it gives them a well-paid job with training and career prospects close to where they were born and brought up. And others follow family traditions and join relatives who have been working in the industry since it began in the 1970s.
With more than 100 youngsters taking part in Modern Apprenticeships and others involved in National Progression Awards salmon farming is recognised as a great place to learn and develop a fulfilling career.
