GRIEG Seafood lost about 21,700 salmon in an escape from its Loch Snizort site, near Skye, the company said. The fish, weighing an average 2kg, escaped through a hole in a net, discovered by a diver during a routine check at the farm on February 11. A report was submitted to the government agency Marine Scotland. Grieg Seafood, headquartered in Norway, has seven pens in Loch Snizort, where it grows more than 400,000 salmon. Most of the farmer’s UK operations are around Shetland.
