The Demise of Loch Maree

What has occurred across the west coast of Scotland over the last few decades is nothing short of a travesty. We have been responsible for the systematic demise of a great natural resource, decimating the wild populations of salmon and sea-trout in order to support big business in farmed salmon.

In the case of the river Ewe and Loch Maree system, the installation of a fish farm in Loch Ewe correlated with the decline of what was once the worlds premier destination for sea-trout in the world. Not only have we lost the sea-trout, but almost all the jobs its supported. This is the story of the demise of Loch Maree.

Major Protest March Against Salmon Farms

Major Protest March Against Salmon Farms
December 15th in Carrigaline

On the 15th December 2012 NSFAS (No Salmon Farms At Sea), FISSTA, Save Bantry Bay, Save Galway Bay and Friends of the Irish Environment, along with other local and national organisations, will be holding a protest march in Carrigaline against the proposals for the further development of salmon farms around our coast.

We will be congregating at Carrigaline Secondary School at 12.00pm and march from there to Minister Simon Coveney’s constituency office. Minister Coveney has been a strong supporter of the aquaculture industry and we must let him know that his support is misguided and will result in catastrophe not only for our stocks of wild salmon and sea trout but also for the communities and local businesses that depend on there very existence. This is an appeal to all like minded individuals and organisations to show your support for our cause and your opposition for this proposed blight on our coastline.

Please inform your clubs, friends and families and turn up on the day with banners or placards. Let’s give Mr Coveney something to think about over his Christmas holidays.
