Organic Sea Harvest originated from a long held desire by Alex MacInnes to return to his fish farming roots, along with a strongly held belief that it is possible to deliver a world-class product from a small scale independent fish farming operation.
OSH is the first independent farming start up for many decades, uniquely going against the trend for consolidation in the Scottish aquaculture industry.
The company is fully dedicated to growing organic salmon off the north east coast of Skye. To make them organic, each farm will have a maximum consent of 2,500 tons, with the fish grown to the Soil Association organic standards.
It is intended to create a Fish Management Area solely for Organic Sea Harvest and the organic sites supplying only certified produce.
There are currently two sea sites;
Cùl nan Cnoc & Inbhir Tobhta
Culnacnoc & Invertote
Organic Sea Harvest`s creation was undertaken with a genuine desire to work with the local community, create employment and help retain as much of the generated wealth as is commercially practical in the communities of Skye & Lochalsh, whilst also being conscious of and actively working to minimize any potential or perceived environmental impacts.
