Dawnfresh Trout netting breach in Loch Awe

Over the past few years Dawnfresh has repeatedly told our communities that the reason they need to replace the trout farm units is because the nets were old and vulnerable and the new nets were unbreachable.
Beginning of February saw a net breach in Loch Awe and thousands of trout were released. The net concerned was new, only installed last November.

This is exactly what we were told would not happen and shows how much a risk we are at in Loch Etive. Loch Awe does not have the predator pressure that Etive has, how many other nets have they installed that could be faulty?
