Small changes make a difference
Eat less fish
Eat lower trophic level fish – fish and shellfish that are lower down the food chain.
Explore alternative options for aquaculture. Closed containment could be an alternative to relieve the environmental impact of salmon farming, but there are issues with industry scale, technology, welfare and carbon footprint/resources use (energy, water, wild-caught fish for feed) that need to be addressed.

We know our customers want their food to be delicious – but more and more, they want to know it’s sustainable. That’s why we don’t serve farmed salmon at Wilsons.

Eating Atlantic salmon from open net salmon farms is the wrong choice for our health and the health of our environment. Responsible consumers should avoid these inhumanely, unsustainably raised fish.

I actively boycott farmed salmon, both at home and in restaurants. This factory farming of the sea, with its effluents, diseases, pesticides, parasites, is the greatest environmental catastrophe to hit the West coast of Scotland in my lifetime.
