Dick lived in Cor­pach for many years and was one of the first fish sci­en­tists who nur­tured salmon farm­ing on a large scale. He was at Lochailort with Unilever in the 1970s and will talk of those early days.

A few lo­cals, par­tic­u­larly Fran­cis Cameron Head, had a ma­jor part to play in those em­bry­onic years of this now global in­dus­try. This will be a unique op­por­tu­nity to hear about the story of fish farm­ing in Lochaber – a his­tory which has not been for­mally recorded.

The talk is on Thurs­day March 2 at 8pm in the Ben Ne­vis Ho­tel. Ev­ery­one wel­come.
