LINK Acoustic Deterrent Device Statement- March 2021

29th March 2021

This statement sets out LINK member concerns on the use of ADDs by the aquaculture industry in Scotland.
Scottish Environment LINK considers the use of Acoustic Deterrent Devices (ADDs) by the aquaculture industry in Scottish waters poses a significant and unnecessary risk to cetaceans. LINK believes regulation and management of ADDuse by the salmon farming industry, with the ultimate aim of phasing out their use entirely, is required to ensure protection for cetaceans and full compliance with European Protected Species legislation.
