There is good progress – the shorebase application for Planning Permission has gone through, the 60ft service vessel has been built (in Holland?) and is to be named Beinn Eibhin, at least one Colonsay member has attended a successful induction course, the manager has been appointed and moorings for various craft are being finalised.  Colonsay looks forward to welcoming this exciting new venture, a fish farm to be operated to the highest environmental standards by a major international company providing employment and skills within our community.  The farm should be operational by autumn and we wish it and everyone involved a warm welcome and the greatest of success.
