Boat fuel leak causes disruption at salmon farm


Work is ongoing in the Sound of Mull to limit pollution following the sinking of a fish farm landing craft.

The Julie Anne, operated by Scottish Sea Farms, sank on Thursday, near the company’s Fiunary salmon farming site.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) said steps were taken to limit the spread of oil and it was not aware of any fish being harmed.

Plans are now being put in place for the removal of the remaining oil and recovery of the 15m (49ft) vessel, off the Ardnamurchan coast.
