UK - The Scottish salmon business is recovering from a market slump and production should increase from 2007, the industry's national body has said. Scottish Salmon said one million fresh salmon meals were being consumed every day in the UK. Chief executive Sid Patten said this should mean greater security for jobs and Highlands and Islands communities dependent on fish farming. The industry's critics said farming caused environmental problems. Scottish Salmon - the short form for the Scottish Salmon Producers' Organisation - said the business was emerging from a difficult period. Source: BBC
