Aquaculture or fish farming is a rapidly growing industry in the United Kingdom, and is largely confined to salmon and trout. This chapter discusses salmon and trout farming and their impact on the marine environment. Salmon fish farms cause an increase of wastes or organic matter entering the water. Trout farming contributes to the development of algal blooms caused by the release of nutrients such as phosphorus from excess feed and waste from the fish.

Keywords:   aquaculture, fish farming, salmon, trout, algal blooms
