Climate Change and Ocean Acidification
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
- 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 Climate Change and Ocean Acidification subgroup is responsible for overseeing delivery of the Production Cycle and on-Farm Management workstream. Transparency is a shared objective of all of the subgroups.
