Why the Griggs review signals more bad news for wild fish

Wednesday 16th February

On Thursday 10th February Professor Russel Griggs published a report, on behalf of Scottish Government, that follows his review of the regulatory system governing aquaculture in Scotland. In the days that followed, Scottish Government were quick to welcome findings. 

Salmon & Trout Conservation's director in Scotland, Andrew Graham-Stewart believes that the review signals more bad news for the environment and wild fish and responds to Professor Grigg's review with a focus on his suggestions for sustainable growth, centralising control, no right for local community objections, centrally collected science and abandoning the precautionary principle.
