FOL­LOW­ING the suc­cess of a sim­i­lar event in 2016, res­i­dents from across Ar­gyll are be­ing in­vited to a sec­ond free tasting where they can sam­ple a range of fresh, lo­cally-farmed trout pro­duced by fish farm­ing com­pany Dawn­fresh at its farms on Loch Etive and Loch Awe.

The event will take place in the Taynuilt Vil­lage Hall on Wed­nes­day April 26 from 4pm to 7.30pm.

Dawn­fresh has five sites at dif­fer­ent points in Loch Etive, from Port na Mine in the east to Ard­chat­tan House in the west.

The farms op­er­ate in har­mony with the en­vi­ron­ment, are sus­tain­able and sup­port the ru­ral econ­omy.

Known for their qual­ity pro­duce, Dawn­fresh is Scot­land’s largest trout sup­plier and sup­plies ma­jor UK re­tail­ers, as well as ex­port­ing across the globe, pro­mot­ing the qual­ity of Loch Etive farmed fish world­wide.

The com­pany em­ploys more than 550 full-time staff, with up to 200 ad­di­tional tem­po­rary work­ers at key pe­ri­ods.

Ste­wart Hawthorn, farm­ing di­rec­tor at Dawn­fresh, said: ‘ We have al­ways con­sid­ered our­selves to be a real part of the lo­cal area and want to share these prod­ucts with lo­cal res­i­dents, get their feed­back and tell them more about the qual­ity of fish we pro­duce in their com­mu­nity.’
