The company which is considering setting up fish farms at two sites off the coast of Bute is to give a presentation to the island’s community council this week.

Representatives of the Scottish Salmon Company will attend Bute Community Council’s monthly meeting this Wednesday, July 15, at 7pm at the Pavilion cafe in Rothesay; admission to the meeting is free, and members of the public are welcome to attend.

The company announced earlier this year that it was examining the potential for fish farm developments off the Ardroscadale shore, to the north of St Ninian’s Bay on the island’s west coast, and at White Port, a short distance south-east of the village of Kilchattan Bay.

The firm has held information events on the aquaculture industry in general at the Pavilion, Kingarth Hotel and Ballianlay Hall over recent months, though this week’s BCC meeting will be the first time the company’s representatives have spoken to the island’s residents on anything other than a one-to-one basis.
