Salmon Scotland, the trade body representing Scotland’s salmon producers has set up a reporting mechanism for people to report waste, regardless of the source. The intention is that salmon farmers close to the location can help remove it.
A dedicated inbox – firstname.lastname@example.org – has been created, and reports should ideally contain a ‘what3words’ exact location and photo.
The information will be collated centrally and reported to local teams for recovery.
The new measures cover the entire area where salmon farms are based – the north-west Highlands, the Western Isles, Argyll and Bute, Shetland and Orkney.
