SALMON FISH FARMS

It would appear the pressure is building up against the salmon fish farms, to be more open and transparent, as shown on the PANORAMA programme, televised last night, on BBC1, this on top of the David Attenborough comments earlier in the month. On the news tonight, SEPA were continuing to investigate abnormalities with salmon fish farming, and saying that the self- regulation, is leaving, a lot to be desired.   On the wild salmon front, Dr.Alan Wells has been asked to make a report, to the Scottish Government, soonest to show just how bad the wild salmon numbers are, at present in Scottish rivers.                             Since the TDSFB recommendation, to return all salmon, expires on June 1st, it will be interesting to see what recommendation, is made after this date ?
