No expansion of Loch Etive fish farms

I refer to your report (The Oban Times, March 22) ‘Fly-tippers dump waste on shores of Loch Etive’ and also in the same edition on the appointment of Alison Hutchins as Dawnfresh’s director, for which I would like to congratulate her.

However, while all efforts to clear up the shoreline of Loch Etive are extremely welcome, and supported by Friends of Loch Etive, it would be incomplete not to note that the storage by Dawnfresh of unused fish farm cages and other fish farm equipment on the shoreline continues at Inverawe despite an enforcement notice served by Argyll and Bute Council requiring an end to the practice.

This matter has been pursued by the council for some months.

An appeal was made by Dawnfresh to the Scottish Government, over the heads of Argyll and Bute Council, but Dawnfresh lost that appeal and its arguments were rejected by the Reporter for the Scottish Government. Since then, the continued failure of Dawnfresh to remove its unused fish farming equipment scattered on the shoreline at Inverawe should be of concern to everyone in the Etive community.
