Skye Waters Against Fish Farming

Skye Waters Against Fish Farming, why and what?

Derek Dowsen, ghillie and leasie of the River Snizort near Skaebost on the Isle of Skye (Scotland) disputes the claim made by fish farmers on Skye that there is hardly any wild salmon and trout around Skye anymore, but he emphasises that the fish farms have a considerable impact on those that are still left, and that they need protecting.
