UK - Asda has dropped the Scottish salmon supplier Wester Ross Fisheries (WRF) due to concerns over its environmental impact.

The company had previously been praised by Asda for its environmental credentials and the quality of its farmed salmon, reports TheSundayTimes.

The announcement from Asda coincides with mounting pressure on the Highland council to force WRF to reapply for permission to farm fish at its Ardessie sites in Ross and Cromarty.

A Scottish government audit recently found that an assessment of the firm’s environmental impact, carried out in 2002, was “inadequate”.
