Salmon exports continue to grow at record levels, new figures for 2017 have shown.
Consignments sent abroad grew to £600 million in 2017, up 35% (£155.5 million) compared
Europe continues to be the top export market.
Scott Landsburgh, Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) chief executive said:
“The demand for Scottish salmon continues to grow in recognition of its taste, quality
and provenance and these are key drivers for growth in the USA, EU and Asian markets.
“This record-breaking export success is a tribute to all those who work in salmon
farming and is a further reminder of the importance of salmon to the Scottish economy
and food and drink sector.”
