Source Documents on Jellyfish inside and around salmon farms: EIR release

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

Information requested

Thank you for your request dated 15 September 2023 which you made as part of your request for a review of our response to your original EIR case reference number 202300372264.

Your request

You asked for us to: “provide the source documents and the 'advice' cited above.”

For context, by "above", you are referring to wording contained within Annex A of our response to your previous EIR request handled under case reference number 202300372264.


As the information you have requested is ‘environmental information’ for the purposes of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs), we are required to deal with your request under those Regulations.

Response to your request

I enclose a copy of most of the information you requested. Please find PDFs 1, 2 & 3 enclosed.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because exceptions under regulation 10(4)(e) (internal communications) and regulation 11(2) (personal data of a third party) of the EIRs applies to that information. The reasons why these exceptions apply are explained in the Annex to this letter.
