Scotland lies where the warm waters of the Gulf Stream meet the cold waters of the North Atlantic, creating nutrient rich feeding grounds to support a thriving marine habitat. With Europe’s longest coastline, over 12,000km, it ranges from long shallow beaches to rugged inlets and sheltered high tidal sea lochs, making it possible for a huge variety of species to grow.
From nature’s blessing, a successful and vibrant industry has grown over hundreds of years. Today, Scotland’s traditional methods still flourish alongside an evolving modern industry; Scotland has created a unique blend of skills, products and industry unlike anywhere else in the world.
The industry has invested in modern equipment, systems and training to ensure a highly skilled, specialist workforce. Through innovation and product development, it adapts to changing market needs and produces high quality, fully traceable, safe and delicious products.
