Stop Proposed Fish farm on West coast of Jura

Stop Proposed Fish farm on West coast of Jura

We are asking SEPA and Argyll and Bute Planning council to refuse Kames proposal for a Fish Farm development on the West coast of the Isle of Jura.

Why is this important?

The environmental impacts would be devastating for wildlife found on the west coast.

The West Coast of Jura is a truly unspoilt wilderness.

The chance of escapee fish would be very high given the ferocity of the gales on an extremely exposed site during the winter months.

Please if you need further information check out some links from various sources raising concerns on fish farming.

Reasons for signing

  • REGARDED BY MANY AS ONE OF THE GREAT WILD WALKS OF SCOTLAND THE WEST COAST OF JURA SHOULD NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BE DOMESTICATED BY MANMADE FEATURES. GIVE US A BREAK. HOW MUCH MORE OF OUR LOVELY WORLD DO THE DEVELOPERS WANT?
  • as explained so clearly by Louise in the 'Ileach' this week, we must protect these special waters from such vaguely considered proposals
  • This should never be allowed to happen.
