OHFT were contacted by Marine Harvest farms office in November to say a hole had been found in a pen at their Hellisay site. They informed OHFT an inspection had been carried out and they did not believe any fish had been lost but would monitor the situation. Marine Harvest have contacted OHFT again to say a count has been conducted and they have lost 24,500 Salmon at an average weight of 1.1kg. They have notified Marine Scotland and the figures published online will be updated accordingly. The Hellisay site is just off the North East coast of Barra. OHFT appreciate this has happened during the closed season but as it is an important issue we would like to notify fisheries throughout the Hebrides.
