Farmed Ballan Wrasse

In a unique industry partnership, we are spearheading an initiative where Ballan Wrasse is commercially farmed for use in salmon cages

These ‘cleaner fish’ can be used as a natural alternative in our sea lice management strategies. 

We were the first farming company to engage with the concept of commercially farming wrasse, along with Viking Fish Farms at Ardtoe Marine Laboratory.

Findings from the Ballan Wrasse project are shared with the wider industry through the Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation. This ensures that all developments can benefit the Scottish salmon farming sector as a whole, as it competes to gain a share of domestic and international markets.
