Aquaculture expansion

Sir,

In response to Mr Anderson’s rather rose-tinted letter last week, I’d like to ask the question whether in the face of mounting scientific evidence against aquaculture the Scottish Salmon Company (SSC) will actually listen to the feedback it gets in the course of its ‘programme of consultation with local residents and organisations’.

Or will they just pretend that they are interested and push on regardless, ignoring people’s concerns about the serious issues aquaculture faces with sea lice, chemical pollution, impact of escapes on wild salmon populations, damage to populations of cleaner fish and the fish that are used as food for the salmon, fish density that is, as far as I am aware, way beyond that recommended by the RSPCA etc etc?
