Scotland.- This short film explains the environmentally friendly sustainable solution Scottish Sea Farms have found to help reduce chemicals in the salmon farming – the use of cleaner Wrasse fish.

Specifically, Sea Farms are helping to fund a £2 million research and development project into the Wrasse, and how they counteract issues such as sea lice. This long term proposal integrates the combined efforts of Marine Harvest, Stirling University, Machrihanish Marine Labs to breed the fish and research their long-term implications.

Due to the groundbreaking nature of this project Scottish Sea Farms have highlighted the technicality of the project by conducting extensive interviews with marine biologists to help educate on the process and ambitions of the project.
