GLOBAL - A new web site launched today will help to educate the public about the benefits of salmon farming and bring together salmon farmers from around the world.

The International Salmon Farmers Association (ISFA) revealed its new web site, www.salmonfarming.org, today in a co-operative launch by its members around the world. Representatives from countries such as Norway, Scotland, Chile, United States and Canada have all contributed to the project.

Scott Landsburgh, Chief Executive of Scottish Salmon Producers' Organisation, said: "This is a new approach for the international salmon farming community to connect with the general public and with each other.

"As the world's population continues to grow and the need for sustainable sources of healthy and nutritious protein increases, the authoritative information on the website will help to explain the positive contribution that our industry can make towards achieving food security."

The web site includes information about ISFA, salmon-producing countries, the life cycle of farmed salmon and the shared vision for sustainable growth.
