Second time lucky?

Scotland’s first semi-closed fish farm could find a home in Loch Linnhe, after a plan to site it on Loch Long was rejected by a national park. If built, it will be Scotland’s largest fish farm by volume.

Last year Loch Long Salmon (LLS), a joint venture between Simply Blue Aquaculture, Trimara Services and Golden Acre Foods, applied to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park to build Scotland’s first semi-closed fish farm at Loch Long near Beinn Reithe, comprising four circular pens, 50m in diameter.

Fish Farmer reports on what could be Loch Long Salmon’s second crack at a project that aims to write a new chapter in Scottish aquaculture. Find out more in our January issue, online now.
