AN APPLICATION for a licence for a new fish farm at Dounie, south of Crinan, has been submitted to SEPA.

The application, from Kilmelford-based Kames Fish Farming Ltd, proposes 12 circular cages, each 100m in circumference, served by an automated feed barge.

The salmonids would be grown for 16 months in every 24, with a maximum stocking density of 16.36kg m³. SEPA lists the controlled activity as a ‘discharge of trade effluent from marine cage fish farming of salmon or trout with a maximum biomass of 2,500 tonnes, including residues arising from medicines and sea lice treatments’.
