Presentation on Parr-smolt Transformation In Out-of-season Triploid Atlantic Salmon (salmo Salar L.) - by Taylor J.F., Leclercq E., Preston A.C., Guy D., and Migaud H.
In recent years there has been a dramatic increase in the production of farmed Atlantic salmon within Europe raising concerns about the environmental impact of these activities. One particular area for concern is the increase in escapee fish and their effects on wild populations. As an example, in Scotland alone, 52 escapee events were reported between 2003 and 2005. Thus there is an urgent need to address the negative environmental impact of farmed salmon escapees. Furthermore, with greater public awareness and the growing emphasis to protect natural resources, the development and implementation of new environmental regulations is required to maintain a sustainable and eco-friendly industry.
