About This Report


The Aquaculture industry is dominated by the farming of Atlantic salmon in the lochs and around the island coastline of Scotland. Trout, mussels and other shellfish are also farmed, but nearly 95% of industry revenue is estimated to come from salmon farming. The performance of the industry is thus highly dependent on trends in global salmon prices and supply conditions in competing producer countries.

The industry has fared well over the past five years, thanks to soaring global salmon prices and rising aquaculture exports.

Companies in this industry farm salmon, trout, shellfish and other aquatic organisms in nets or cages in marine and freshwater lochs or coastal waters.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
