Fish Farmer - - All The Latest Industry News From The Uk -

MARINE Har­vest Scotland has bought the fleet of Sea­horse Aqua­cul­ture – and taken on the com­pany’s four em­ploy­ees to crew the ves­sels.

The three boats – The Nitrox, David An­drews and Tie Ven­ture 111 – will be de­ployed in a va­ri­ety of farm ser­vice roles.

Marine Har­vest Scotland sea­wa­ter pro­duc­tion man­ager David MacGil­livray said:‘I’d like to wel­come our new boat crew to the com­pany.

‘I’m sure with their great experience gained at Sea­horse Aqua­cul­ture this will lead to our new col­leagues hav­ing an op­por­tu­nity to progress their ca­reers within MHS, con­tin­u­ing the very im­por­tant work they carry out.’

Colin Bell, the owner of north­west High­lands based Sea­horse Aqua­cul­ture, said:‘I would like to thank Marine Har­vest, and in par­tic­u­lar Arthur Camp­bell, for their sup­port over the years and wish them every suc­cess for the fu­ture.’

The Nitrox will mainly be used for clean­ing and dis­in­fect­ing fal­lowed farm sites in prepa­ra­tion for re­ceiv­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of fish.

The tug David An­drews will be used for tow­ing pens and barges, while Tie Ven­ture 111 will be based in Har­ris and Lewis, be­ing used mostly as a site ser­vice boat.
