What has the R/SPCA done? Precisely zero as far as I can see. HMSG has a lot of explaining to do....but will let the whole matter float over its head.

    AFAIK Dr Martin Jaffa is a 'consultant' with a known company in the 'aquaculture' industry......so I am not surprised by the post above.

    The 'Industry' has every recognised UK seat of learning and expertise in its grip; to find a 'specialist' who personally, or through his employment, is not dependent on either SG research, funding or - in a similar manner - employed directly or indirectly by the Industry is a hard beast to find! Nor is this likely to change.

    Default Wrasse........the solution, but not to AGD

    A wee bird told me that the 'wonder fish' wrasse are a serious vector for AGD. They carry the pathogen in their bodies and pass it on, in the very closed and unnatural environment of a farm, I imagine AGD could be spread quickly.
    I recall recent comments on AGD in west coast farms, does anyone know any more ?

    Default Poisons & Toxins Are Cruel .

    Toxins & Poisons used against the environment for certain peoples so called gains/profits are cruel & unnecessary. In my opinion it's a well known fact we are a lot better off in every way working with nature so sustainability with the eco system is maintained for the future of every creatures benefit ( and ours ). I'm personally just as sad/enraged when raptors are poisoned or trapped for other sports gains. A topical point I suppose but everyone can have their view. HNY to everyone.

    The timing is unfortunate with Sunday Times readers bellies full of toxic smoked salmon !
    Perhaps the bastions of equality,probity ,zero carbonism and internationalism in Holyrood will admit they are presiding over an ecological disaster of monumental scale

    Suspect that few hardened SNP supporters read the Sunday Times or care about its views so the article will have little effect.
