Scottish salmon farmers achieve record yields, but global market share continues to shrink
Scotland will harvest 205,393 tonnes of salmon in 2021, according to the newly published Scottish Fish Farm Production Survey. This is a new national record and is up 7% from the previous year.
On a less positive note, however, the report shows that smolt survival in the 2019 class fell to 74.4% from 77.5% the previous year.
Mortality is included in the number of fish not harvested for human consumption. This includes escaped fish, culled for production reasons, removed for sampling purposes, legally culled, or selected for broodstock production.
