Current Locations of Active Salmon Farms

Remember our wild juvenile salmon and sea trout pass these salmon cages while migrating. Many don't make it past the gauntlet and die due to attack from salmon farm sea lice populations. This has been a serious contributing factor in the reduction of Irish wild salmon and sea trout populations affecting the valuable Recreational Angling Sector. We are asking the Irish Government to remove all open net salmon farms from the coast and move them inland to closed containment systems.
