Half a million fishfarm escapes last year. 25% mortality before reaching saleable size. What would people across the UK think if a quarter of all cattle and sheep were dead in the fields?

SSPO chief executive Tavish Scott said: "Salmon farms and seals can co-exist quite happily in the marine environment".

Unfortunately a healthy marine environment can not co-exist with salmon farming. Just as honest MSPs can't co-exist with the salmon farming lobby.

the firm I worked for tried the disease line when they found they couldn't sell the smolts, but it didn't work and the firm went bust, the staff got the blame, easker1

I read somewhere fairly recently that salmon farming in Scotland is set to double, apparently there's 50 million to be invested.

With this sort of money involved i can understand why the government is reluctant to challenge them.
