Scotland-based salmon farmer Loch Long Salmon has submitted a proposal to Scottish officials for construction of a closed-containment salmon farm in Loch Linnhe on the west coast of the country.

The farm would include eight closed farming enclosures measuring approximately 50 meters in diameter, as well as two freshwater holding units and a closed harvest enclosure.

Formal public meetings on the proposed development are scheduled for the communities of Duror & Kentallen and Appin in September and October, respectively.

“We have already met with many local people as we have been developing our proposal for this location," Loch Long Salmon Managing Director Stewart Hawthorn said.
