IN BRIEF - Proposed salmon farm raises environmental concerns in Hebrides

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Significant environmental concerns have been raised about plans to build a large salmon farm just off the coast of Canna, a tiny Hebridean island near Skye.

Mowi, the world’s largest salmon producer, has tabled outline plans to install eight fish farm cages to grow thousands of tonnes of organic salmon in one of the most environmentally protected areas of sea in the UK.

The cages would be 160 metres in circumference, the largest installed in the UK, after Scottish ministers relaxed rules in an effort to push salmon farms further offshore to reduce the pollution and welfare problems that dog the industry.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Zero-contact delivery for Calvert at Turkish yard

CANADA
Monday, May 25, 2020

With freezer trawler Calvert ready to be delivered to Canadian owner Ocean Choice International, a series of extraordinary measures had to be taken to comply with Covid-19 restrictions.

The 74 metre LOA, 16 metre breadth Calvert was launched ready for outfitting in July last year at the Tersan yard in Turkey, built to a Skipsteknisk ST-117 design for demersal and pelagic trawling, and with three main winches for twin-rig trawling.

Calvert’s accommodation is for a crew of 39 – and due to the travel restrictions intended to prevent spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, the crew travelled to Turkey on a chartered aircraft.
