Newly appointed Environment Minister, Paul Wheelhouse, will visit the Marine Harvest fish farm in Lochailort tomorrow, Wednesday 17th October.
Mr Wheelhouse will meet staff and tour the facilities at the farm.
He will also meet with representatives from one of China’s largest food manufacturers, China National Cereals, Oils and Foodstuffs Corporation.
Mfr Wheelhouse could have chosen to learn rather than parade, by visiting the controversial Ardmaddy fish farm – polluting way beyond its permitted ‘allowable zone of effects’ – and talked to the highly informed and rationally driven saveseilsound campaigners.
He could have visited the Ardmaddy fish farm, called in SEPA representatives and saveseilsound campaigners and got closer to the complex and troubling issue he dropped out of making when he chose not to call in the way out of scale Lakeland Marine proposal to move to Cuan Sound and double the Ardmaddy fish farm installation’s capacity.
He could have donned a diving suit and gone down to lose visibility in the murk below the Ardmaddy ‘plant’.
