Fish farming in the United Kingdom has progressed dramatically in the last decade so that today the U.K. ranks about sixth in Europe for farmed fish. Total production was about 4400 MT in 1980 and 5200 MT in 1981 (Anon. 1981). Regrettably, however, the majority of the production is concentrated on one species, viz., rainbow trout. Nevertheless, the interest in farmed fish, actively encouraged by the media, is now extending the commercial horizons into such species as: salmon, Dover sole, turbot, eels, crayfish, and carp.
