Comment on BBC report about levels of Omega 3 in farmed salmon

Scott Landsburgh, chief executive, said:

“The BBC report was a useful reminder that farmed salmon is an excellent source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids, bringing with it a wealth of health benefits for all ages.

“As an industry it is important that we source feed responsibly and, as a result, there have been some changes in the Omega 3 content, but the levels are still very significant.

“Scientific research is always looking for new ideas which can bring about useful changes. However, we are quite clear that our focus remains on responsible production of high quality, nutritious salmon which has been the mainstay of our success at home and abroad.”
