Green light for Skye fish farm
PLANS for a new Atlantic salmon fish farm on Skye have been approved by the Highland Council despite objections from the community council and local fishery board.
Councillors at the North Planning Applications Committee agreed the Scottish Salmon Company’s application for 10 cages at the site, referred to as the Outer Portree Fish Farm, in the sound of Raasay. Site access will be via Portree Harbour. Objections ranged from visual and landscape concerns and impact on the harbour, to potential effect on other marine animals.
