A cap on prices is seen as a way of not only attracting new workers but also boosting the surrounding area. This is already happening in some farms.” Full article to be read with the Scottish Housing News website.
There is a dedicated website to Scottish Salmon along with detailed content on their visions for the future both for farming of Salmon and importantly the impact their industry has on the environment.
