Edward Mountain MSP delivers speech on Salmon Farming in Scotland report

The Rural Economy and Connectivity (REC) Committee delivered a wide-ranging report on Salmon Farming in Scotland.

In my speech as Convenor of the REC Committee, I set out that the salmon famning industry is of big economic value to rural Scotland.

However, the industry faces serious challenges - such as lowering mortality rates and reducing environmental impact - and the REC Committee’s report offers recommendations on how salmon faming can grow sustainably and responsibly in the future.
