Salmon outbreak support offered

Companies caught up in a salmon disease outbreak have been offered a £1.5m support package.

The money will help small firms in Shetland where three cases of Infectious Salmon Anaemia (ISA) have been discovered this year.

About £500,000 of the Scottish Government money will go to a firm whose healthy trout stock was hit by movement restrictions.

The rest will be available to small companies which rely on the industry.
