Government salmon farm research ‘excluded environmental impact – The Ferret, 16th of March 2021

The Ferret’s revelation has sparked anger from campaigners, who accused the government of ignoring the damage done by salmon farm pollution because it was “inconvenient”. They are demanding that the industry cease using the sea as a “dustbin”.
