The Herald Business - - Themonthinheadlines -

A re­port on the salmon in­dus­try has re­vealed the grow­ing im­por­tance of salmon farm­ing to the econ­omy and high con­fi­dence within the sec­tor. The re­port high­lights the cre­ation last year of 234 jobs, al­most £30m of cap­i­tal in­vest­ment and just un­der £300m ex­pen­di­ture on sup­pli­ers and ser­vices – 80% of that in Scot­land. The sec­tor in­jected more than £500m into the econ­omy in 2009.
