Salmon Interactions Working Group


This group is no longer active.

The group initially:

  • looked at the conclusions and any recommendations from the parliamentary inquiries into farmed salmon in Scotland
  • evaluated current policy and advice governing wild/farmed salmon sea lice interactions, and reviewed then existing and planned projects around the interactions
  • made recommendations, including a delivery plan of agreed actions and timescales, for a future interactions approach

The minutes of this working group are available in our website archive. 


The membership of the group is supported by Salmon Scotland (formerly SSPO) and Fisheries Management Scotland.

It includes:

  • aquaculture and wild fisheries sectors
  • Scottish Environment Link (SELINK)
  • Marine Scotland
  • Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA)
  • NatureScot (formerly SNH)
