“This SEPA compliance assessment scheme data for 2016, that was published in October 2017, shows that 85% of all Scottish salmon farms were rated excellent or good. The Scottish salmon industry is committed to good environmental performance and we are obviously disappointed if, on occasions, the highest possible standards aren’t achieved.
The industry works closely with SEPA to ensure it complies and where there is room for further improvement, we will strive to raise standards higher. Individual SSPO member companies will work quickly with SEPA to address issues where they arise.”
