Statement from Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation (SSPO) and Shetland Aquaculture Print Article
Posted on: 27/8/2010
The Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation (SSPO) and Shetland Aquaculture are aware that investigations are currently underway by a number of statutory agencies in connection with Hoganess Salmon in Shetland.
While the SSPO and Shetland Aquaculture are deeply shocked at the severity of the allegations unfolding, we recognise that the speculation is precisely that and it is important to allow the investigating authorities to carry out their work and report in due course. The SSPO and Shetland Aquaculture have urged the company to assist the investigating agencies fully.
For the time being, until the next steps become clear, the organisations have accepted the company’s offer for the sites under investigation to be suspended from existing certification schemes operated by the SSPO, Scottish Quality Salmon and Shetland Aquaculture.
