The Oban Times - - News -

IN­VEST­MENT into the fish­ing in­dus­try on the west coast con­tin­ues as a new land­ing craft ar­rived at Loch Kishorn.

The Keira May, which is al­most 15 me­tres long, is ca­pa­ble of car­ry­ing 21 tonnes of deck cargo and was de­liv­ered to the Scot­tish Sea Farms site on the north­west High­land loch last week.

Jim Gal­lagher, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Scot­tish Sea Farms, said: ‘ This latest ves­sel is part of a huge in­vest­ment pro­gramme as we con­tinue to de­velop new and ex­ist­ing sites to meet grow­ing de­mand for our qual­ity salmon, both here and abroad. This in­vest­ment is part of our com­mit­ment to putting some­thing back into the Scot­tish econ­omy and sup­port­ing Scot­tish sup­pli­ers.’
