Our new fish-farm is taking shape – the command unit came on site a few weeks ago and by great good fortune your acting editor got a chance to visit it; it was so interesting that a special page was created at  http://www.colonsay.info/text/Marine%20Harvest.htm  At present, the cages are being installed, planning permission is awaited for the shore facility (a modest structure near The Pantry) and moorings are being finalised for the support craft.  A total of 4 Colonsay folk have now been engaged, subject of course to a period of assessment – all of them are extremely enthusiastic, and the entire community wishes well to this exciting new enterprise.  Apparently everything will be up and running by September and The Corncrake will run a fuller report at that time.
