SCOTLAND, UK - A campaign to stop Lighthouse Caledonia Ltd's proposed fish farm in Broad Bay, Lewis is underway.

At the end of October 2009, Lighthouse Caledonia Ltd (reg. office: Cairndow, ARGYLL PA26 8BH) lodged a planning application (ref: 09/00557/FFSCSC ) with Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar to develop a ‘previously unused’ marine site at Sron Alla Tolan, approx 1 mile off the north shores of Gress beach. The application is now pending an environmental impact assessment.

'No Fish Farms In Broad Bay' is campaigning against the development demanding a moratorium on fish farm development in Broad Bay until such time as the proposed economic report has been completed and its findings fully explored and evaluated.

A meeting was held last night (17 February) to discuss the issues raised.
