Environment Award winner 2016

HIGHLANDS & ISLANDS FOOD & DRINK AWARDS

This award recognises businesses that use suitable environmental practice in production and distribution of food & drink products and services, and have significantly reduced the environment impact associated with their business. 


Symbiotic relationship between salmon and wrasse is a beautiful example and a simple solution to perplexing question of how to grow sustainable seafood. 

Wester Ross team introduced wrasse into salmon pens only few years ago; now, after a steep learning curve, we can see the results of this wonderful co-existence.

By all accounts, wrasse program has been, and continues to be, a great success. We have great hopes that incorporating wrasse into the life of the farm will eliminate any need for medicinal sea lice control in the future.
