Current stock of Halibut will not be replenished
Gigha Halibut can be found on some of the best menus in the land, and rightly so. A delicious-tasting fish from the island of Gigha. The company has been in operation for 15 years and gained awards such as Best Scottish Product in the Great Taste Awards, in 2015 and the recipient of 3 stars in the Great Taste Awards.
Unfortunately, due to factors such as changing water parameters, power costs for pumping and the effects of climate change, all have challenged the overall viability of farming Halibut on Gigha.
The Otter Ferry Seafish marine hatchery on Loch Fyne will continue to produce Halibut Juveniles and will seek to identify potential sites suitable for Halibut farming elsewhere in Scotland.
