A new website launched today will help to educate the public about the benefits of salmon farming and bring together salmon farmers from around the world.

The International Salmon Farmers Association (ISFA) revealed its new website,, today in a co-operative launch by its members around the world. Representatives from countries such as Norway, Scotland, Chile, United States and Canada have all contributed to the project.

“This is a new approach for the international salmon farming community to connect with the general public and with each other,” said Scott Landsburgh, Chief Executive of Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation.

“As the world’s population continues to grow and the need for sustainable sources of healthy and nutritious protein increases, the authoritative information on the website will help to explain the positive contribution that our industry can make towards achieving food security,” added Landsburgh.

 The website includes information about ISFA, salmon producing countries, the life cycle of farmed salmon and the shared vision for sustainable growth.
