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.
