25 Years of Scottish Salmon Shame

Scottish salmon farming is a gift that keeps on giving as far as environmental and food safety
journalists are concerned. Over the last few decades the news articles have built up faster and
higher than Scottish salmon's 'mort mountain'.

Here's a selection of news articles ranging from listeria contamination to sea-bed
contamination; from illegal chemical pollution to state-sponsored chemical pollution; from
genetic pollution to genetic modification; from cancer-causing chemicals in farmed salmon to
artificial colourings in farmed salmon; from Private Eye to cataracts; from mass escapes to
mass mortalities; from sea lice infestation to sea life devastation; from organic contaminants
to organic cons; from the killing of seals to the killing of workers; from infectious diseases to
insanitary cases; and from the Thermolicer to the sea lice crisis.
