Tarbert Saxon and Ewan Kennedy your anti-fishfarm bias …

Comment posted Loch Fyne Oysters sold to Scottish Seafood Investments by john in kintyre.

Tarbert Saxon and Ewan Kennedy your anti-fishfarm bias is astounding in your comments.
Surely this investment secures the future of Loch Fyne Oysters, which can only be good for the employees.

Having read other reports on this, is it not the fact that in return for investment Scottish Seafood Investments have aquired 100% of the equity in Loch Fyne Oysters with full agreement of employees.
Scottish Seafood Investments through Associated Seafoods have been active in the Seafood Market recently aquiring Lossie Seafoods of Lossiemouth and Moray Seafoods of Buckie and investing significant funds into the business’s.

    Simple question JB, did Carmichael lie when he stated to the journalist he had no knowledge of the memo, simple question by anybody’s standard
  • SNP alerts infantry to prepare to hunt out Carmichael
    It is not the leaking of the memo that is the issue, it is Carmmicheal’s absolute denial of any knowledge of it till he read it in the Telegraph then further stating that fact on national television and in the National press,
    If that is not a lie then what is?

    Why then Richard was inward investment in Scotland the third best year and that is 2014, the year of the indyref, when you were contemplating and stating you were shifting your portfolio?
    Keep wondering if Dave has had second thoughts regarding tax avoidance since it was not mentioned in the Queen’s Speech, thoughts of dad’s schemes perchance?
  • SNP shuts down local branch Twitter proving witch hunt against Carmichael
    Simply put for you to understand Richard.
    The petitioners are making a legal challenge under the Representation of the People Act 1983 which states “that electors or disappointed candidates can question the result of a Parliamentary Election if a candidate or their agents engage in “corrupt or illegal practises”.
    Whether “Itwisnaeme” Carmichael’s actions are covered by “corrupt or illegal practises” is for the court to decide.
    Understand now Richard?
  • SNP shuts down local branch Twitter proving witch hunt against Carmichael
    Richard stop flogging dead horses and shifting the blame.
    Carmichael stated in his letter of apology to the First Minister,
    quote
    “I accept that its publication was a serious breach of protocol and the details of that account are not correct”

    Get it now Richard, he lied about not having knowledge of the report and then to compound matters tried to cover up his lie.

  1. I fail to see how this is good news. A locally owned, locally managed, local employer taken over by a company owned by a Scandinavian company that has had more name changes than Windscale and a private equity company. Low wages and profits evacuated from A+B I predict!

    • Tarbert Saxon, I made the mistake last year of describing Scottish Salmon Company Limited as Norwegian owned and they complained to newsroom. It seems they are incorporated in Jersey, quoted on the Norwegian Stock Exchange and have their head office in Edinburgh.

      Being a quoted company the shareholders presumably come from all over.

      They appear to have two executive directors, Robert M Brown III, ex- Lehman Brothers managing director and resident in Moscow, who is involved with Kazakhstan and Russian Investments and Vlacheslav Laventyev, who has a long involvement with Russian fish farms.

      The company’s most recent published accounts can be viewed here:- http://hugin.info/143286/R/1567482/486959.pdf

      There are no doubt good reasons for the sale but I find the decision rather sad, as successful employee-owned businesses add a lot to their communities.

  3. Never be fooled into believing the line much peddled by British politicians since the days of Mrs Thatcher that: “it doesn’t matter who owns the company providing they are providing employment”. This is never sustainable long-term. Owners who are not committed to a country/region will always find it much easier to dump an investment than ones who are. It is very clear from Ewan Kennedy’s outline of this company’s background that its commitment to Argyll is tenuous at best.

    I suspect that 5-10 years down the line the former employee-owners of this business will realise they have made a big mistake. I do hope that I am wrong!
