Aquaculture

Aquaculture – the farming of fish, shellfish and other aquatic life – has created vital employment and economic activity in the Highlands in recent times. The aquaculture sector has been described as the most significant new industry to emerge in the Highlands over the last 30 years.

The Highlands are home to the entire output of Scottish farmed salmon, supporting over 4,500 jobs across the region.   See our feature on Loch Duart Salmon in our "Case Studies" page.  Click here.
