Our proud record north of the border speaks for itself. See how we’ve worked to protect and secure healthy and sustainable wild fish stocks in Scotland.
Salmon farm reform
A sustainable future for wild fish
We believe that a future is possible where Scottish salmon farming and wild fish can both thrive. In the medium term this can only be achieved by moving farming into closed tank systems. Doing this will prevent the spread of disease and parasites to wild salmon and sea trout. Whilst working towards this goal, we have to ensure effective regulation of farms so wild fish are better protected.
Mixed stock netting
Putting a stop to non-selective nets
With wild salmon and sea trout stocks in serious decline, the indiscriminate netting of fish along our coasts was increasingly unsustainable. We worked to close these fisheries, ensuring that fish from the most sensitive river populations were not killed and so able to breed.

Help us reform Scottish salmon farming
We have a unique opportunity to influence real positive change through a Scottish Parliamentary Committee Inquiry into salmon farming and its impact on wild fish, scheduled for 2018. It was our campaign that triggered the Inquiry.
Please support our work in gathering comprehensive evidence for the Inquiry.
