  • Munro, L.A. 2020. Scottish Fish Farm Production Survey 2019.
    Scottish Fish Farm Production Survey 2019 link
    The survey is the official statistics publication for Scottish finfish aquaculture production. The survey achieved returns from 100% of industry, in spite of complications due to COVID-19. Notably salmon production reached 203,881, which is a record. Rainbow trout production also increased 15% to 7,405 tonnes.
  • Soares, S.M.C., Stagg, H.E.B., Matthews, C.G.G., Smith, L.E., Turnbull, T. & Munro, E.S. 2020. A case study reporting the occurrence of amoebic gill disease in a public marine aquarium. 156, Bulletin of the European Association of Fish Pathologists, 40(4) 2020.
    During a routine health check, two Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.), populating one of the tanks within the re-circulating sea water system, showed clinical signs of amoebic gill disease (AGD), a condition caused by the parasite Neoparamoeba perurans (syn. Paramoeba perurans).
