To ask the Scottish Government whether it has made a comparison of fish farm regulations, in terms of environmental conditions, between Scotland and Norway.

The environmental impacts of fish farms on the water environment are regulated through the Water Environment (Controlled Activities) (Scotland) Regulations 2011. The Scottish Government has not made any comparison of these Regulations with regulations in Norway.
