Usan Salmon Fisheries is a fourth generation Scottish family business. They are one of the largest independent salmon netting firms in the country. A percentage of the locally netted wild Atlantic salmon and sea trout is smoked to enable it to be sold out of season. They are currently actively pursuing Protected Geographic Indication (PGI) status for Scottish wild salmon. They specialise in selling to trade but sell smoked salmon online and are happy to deal with individuals directly.
