Meridian Salmon Farms is a leading Scottish salmon aquaculture company. It has activities on the Shetland and Orkney islands as well as on the Scottish mainland. These include hatcheries, freshwater sites, seawater sites and processing activities.
The salmon are reared in excellent conditions in the clean, clear waters around the coast of Scotland, Shetland and Orkney Islands. Our sites are selected to have a strong tidal flow of water passing through them. This ensures the fish get plenty of healthy exercise and that the water in the pen is constantly replenished.
Meridian Salmon is able to supply external customers with top quality salmon products to our customer's specifications. Meridian Salmon product brands include 'Lakeland' and 'Orkney Salmon'.
