Compassion in World Farming
A former chief executive of the Scottish Salmon Company accused of spying on an activist is involved in plans for a major new fish farm in Grimsby.
Scottish farms and slaughterhouses should be licensed to prevent cruelty to animals because there is “widespread non-compliance” with animal protection laws, according to a new report.
Industrial emissions of ammonia – a pollutant that damages ecosystems and threatens human health – increased by more than ten per cent in Scotland last year.
Salmon suffering at Scottish fish farms is “endemic” and in breach of animal cruelty law, according to an undercover investigation by animal welfare campaigners.
The Scottish salmon farming industry has incurred “hidden” costs of £3.3 billion since 2013 because of deaths, pollution, parasites and poor animal welfare.
Rules for the live export of animals in Scotland must be improved to match new standards proposed for England and Wales, say critics.
More than five million animal welfare problems, contamination and processing faults have caused the Scottish Government’s food safety watchdog to deem meat unsafe for human consumption since 2016.
An animal welfare charity has launched a legal challenge to stop the Scottish Government from allowing young calf exports all the way from Scotland to Spain.
The growing size Scotland’s dairy herds could boost ammonia gas pollution, which contributes to millions of deaths worldwide, experts have warned.
