Published by "Callander McDowell - Strategic Planning and Marketing for the Aquaculture Industry." Callander McDowell appears to be a trading name of the author, who, writing on the Callander McDowell website, uses the words "my farms," referring to the Norwegian firm, Marine Harvest, which is also known as Mowi. "Is salmon farming to blame for the decline in wild salmon and sea trout numbers along Scotland's west coast? Certainly, anglers think it is. Salmon farming arrived in the west of Scotland during the 1980's which was also about the time that the decline in wild fish numbers began to be noticed. The most obvious difference locally was the presence of the new farms. Just as two and two are four, salmon farming was blamed for falling catches. This book aims to separate fiction from fact by looking back to the events of the 1980's. This gives a whole new perspective to this contentious issue."
