Salmon farming at a cost?
Lice in salmon farming are costing the industry in excess of £1 billion globally with £300 million spent within Scotland alone on chemicals. With the lice becoming more immune to the chemicals we are pouring into the lochs and seas. A report into the lochs in Scotland has shown an increase in levels breaching the environmental limits resulting in toxic waters.
