Dounie fish farm plan withdrawn

A CONTROVERSIAL plan to site a fish farm at Dounie has been withdrawn by the applicant to preserve sea fans and sponges.

Kilmelford-based Kames Fish Farming Ltd submitted an application last November for a SEPA licence for 12 circular cages, each 100m in circumference, to rear a maximum of 2,500 tonnes of fish to meet demand, create six jobs and secure other positions in the business.

The plan drew strong local objection, including a petition with more than 3,000 signatures, collected by the Friends of the Sound of Jura protest group.
