Finfish Aquaculture

22nd September 2004

This crisis follows two decades of rapid expansion without a strategy for the long term future of the industry, or plan incorporating the environment and the needs of other users. The Strategic Framework for Scottish Aquaculture (SFSA) launched in March 2003, makes a commitment to more sustainable aquaculture but further fundamental action is needed.

This discussion paper is 3 of 6 from a series prepared for Sustaining Scotland’s Seas seminar.
