SCOTLAND - The Scottish Shellfish Marketing Group (SSMG) has appointed Shetland mussel farmer Michael Laurenson as their new chairman.

Mr Laurenson’s company Blueshell Mussels, has helped provide a £500,000 boost for SSMG farmers with the recent installation of new production facilities.

The marketing group worked hard to get a foothold on the £60m European market.

Mr Laurenson said: “I take up the position of chairman at a very exciting time for Scottish Shellfish Marketing Group. Demand for Scottish mussels, scallops and oysters has never been stronger, especially over the festive season.
