ORGANIC Sea Harvest, the company which is planning to build four new fish farms at sites off Staffin and Kilmaluag, is to consult with the local community.

On Friday 10 February, from 9am-9pm, a public drop in session is to be staged in Staffin Community Hall. The aim is to allow the company to provide more information about its site plan and overall development.

Organic Sea Harvest wants to grow salmon organically in sites off Tote and Lealt and then process them, including labelling, at a building on a land site in the Staffin area. This could create significant permanent employment for the area.

At the same time Staffin Community Trust have made it clear that they art still committed to attempting to deliver infrastructure improvements to the Staffin Slipway and are investigating funding possibilities.
