Salmon ova import data from July to November 2021: EIR release

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004

Information requested

Ova import data since the last imports detailed in the information disclosed via FOI/202100158979 (i.e. data since 12 December 2020)’.


Attached is a copy of some of the information requested. This includes salmon ova import data obtained from 7 July to 8 November 2021, held by the Scottish Government.

Some of the information you have requested is available from the Scottish Government website where this has been released and published in response to previous requests for information e.g. FoI202100221178 - which includes import data up to 7 July 2021, as well as references to previous requests releasing this type of information.

Please note that recent changes to the import notification system, combined with the fact that there is no legal requirement to supply Scottish Government with health certificates associated with imports of live aquatic animals, means that the import information provided to you may not be a comprehensive and complete record. We have provided you with the information we hold in relation to your request, or provided reference to the same where this is publicly available.

Under regulation 6(1)(b) of the EIRs, we do not have to give you information which is already publicly available and easily accessible to you in another form or format.
