Loss of 20,000 salmon could hit company for around £100,000

THOUSANDS of farmed salmon, worth in excess of £100,000, have escaped from a fish farm off the Isle of Mull in one of the industry’s biggest breaches.

Around 20,000 Atlantic salmon escaped from a Mull fish farm at Bloody Bay, run by Scottish Sea Farms (SSF), on March 25, according to figures released on Scotland’s Aquaculture website.

It cites a ‘predator’ as the reason for the salmon escape, and for the release of 1,300 wrasse, used as a ‘cleaner fish’ to control lice, on the same day.
