Farm will bring jobs to Orkney
SCOTTISH Sea Farms is to expand its business in Orkney after winning planning approval for a new site at Westerbister.
The company will invest more than £3 million in the farm, which will see the creation of six new jobs and significantly increase production.
The Westerbister site will consist 16 x 100m cages, with consent for 1,791 tonnes of salmon production, making it the second largest Scottish Sea Farms site in Orkney.
SSF regional manager Richard Darbyshire said: ‘This is really good news for both Scottish Sea Farms and the local community.
‘This planning approval has been the culmination of four years of consultation and hard work.’t
