Salmon Scotland changed its name from the Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation in November 2021 and opened its membership to supply chain companies, announcing 12 new members in April 2022
Scottish salmon is not just UK shoppers’ number one fish of choice, it is also Britain's top food export, enjoyed by consumers in more than 50 countries.
It is the Salmon Scotland Ltd job to help create the conditions for the long-term, sustainable growth of the sector and to give more consumers, at home and abroad, the chance to enjoy this world renowned, low-fat, healthy protein.
We represent every company farming salmon in Scotland along with companies from across the Scottish salmon supply chain, championing the sector’s interests. We also work with our members, the UK and Scottish governments and regulators to help shape the regulatory environment so both Scotland and our members can thrive.
Salmon Scotland Ltd is governed by a board drawn from leaders in our membership with an independent chair. Our top priorities are to:
Support work to transform the regulatory framework for salmon farming in Scotland to one that is highly regarded, trusted by stakeholders and unlocks the sustainable growth of the sector.
Develop a sector vision to ensure Scottish salmon is at the forefront of sustainability
Improve understanding of the Scottish salmon farming sector and offer open and transparent insight into how it operates.
