Overseas sales of Scottish salmon leaped to a record high of £346million in the first half of 2017, with the latest figures showing a 70% rise in export value compared to the same period last year.
There is good news for one of the north of Scotland’s important industries with the release of the latest export figures for fresh Scottish salmon.
Scottish salmon raked in £500million in overseas sales for the first time in 2014 as it leapt to the top of the UK food export league.
