Loss of seven jobs at Locha­line

The Oban Times - - Community News -

STAY­ING with the fish­ing in­dus­try, there has been wide-spread dis­ap­point­ment in Mull and Morvern by Scot­tish Sea Farm’s de­ci­sion to close its net wash­ing cen­tre on the south shores of Locha­line.

The net sta­tion, which has been op­er­at­ing for around 20 years, em­ploy­ing seven, will be a great loss to the area. Rein­vest­ment, net-wash­ing at sea and the re­quire­ment for a larger han­dling fa­cil­ity is blamed for the clo­sure. Fu­ture busi­ness will be out-sourced to a unit at Kil­birnie in North Ayr­shire, thus in­creas­ing the farm’s car­bon foot­print.
