Animal welfare campaign group Compassion in World Farming has published a “scorecard” rating the major salmon farmers on their performance – and it argues there is still “a long way to go”.
The Scorecard has evaluated the public policies of eight salmon producers, representing more than 50% of worldwide salmon production, in terms of their transparent reporting of key welfare issues. These are based on assessments made from publicly available company information, rated across 13 welfare parameters including stocking density, humane slaughter, sea lice infestations and mortality. Each parameter is marked independently with the resultant comparison table being based on a five-colour scale, from red to green.
Salmon is the most popular fish among UK consumers, with new figures showing sales are up 3.2 per cent in a year. With Scottish salmon taking centre stage in this year’s St Andrew’s Day celebrations – including receptions in Holyrood and in the British Embassy in Paris – data shows that sales reached £1.25 billion in the 12 months to September, making up nearly 30 per cent of all fish bought in the UK. The coming weeks are also expected to see an uptick in sales as families buy Scottish salmon for Christmas festivities.
