Dawnfresh fish farms in Loch Etive in SEPA’s list of top 50 worst offenders.

to quote : –

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency [SEPA] has listed 50 fish farm sites across Scotland in its account of Scotland’s worst polluters.
The focus of offending is on sea bed pollution.
Two Argyll fish farms – both in Loch Etive – have been named in this list.

  • Port na Mine Fish Farm – described as Very Poor – for using an unauthorised site and for issues related to data and envirinmental monitoring.
  • Loch Etive Fish Farm – for the submission of unsatisfactory monitoring reports, breaches of authorised stock density and unreliable data.

Both of these sites are operated by Dawnfresh, a name not infrequently in the media for various concerns as to its operations.
The Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation has dismissed these issues as ‘largely administrative’.
