Strategic Framework for Farmed Fish Health

Information, Gill Health, Sea Lice and Cleanerfish

The Scottish Government committed within the 2017/18 Programme for Government to develop a strategic framework for farmed fish health in Scotland.

Scotland’s 10 Year Farmed Fish Health Framework, developed by the Farmed Fish Health Framework Working Group (FFHFWG), was published in May 2018.

The framework identifies 7 cross cutting workstreams, namely:

  • Information Flow and Transparency
  • Gill Health
  • Sea Lice
  • Cleanerfish
  • Production Cycle and on-Farm Management
  • Licencing Regime and Medicine Use
  • Climate Change and Ocean Acidification

Four subgroups have been established to deliver the framework workstream activities.

The Information, Gill Health, Sea Lice and Cleanerfish subgroup is responsible for overseeing delivery of the first 4 workstreams of the framework; Information flow and transparency, Gill Health, Sea Lice and Cleanerfish. All of the subgroups regard transparency is a shared objective.

Terms of Reference (including membership), and meeting outputs can be found below as downloadable documents.
