One year of redeveloped Inverkerry Hatchery

One year of redeveloped Inverkerry Hatchery.

This week marks one year since to Inverkerry Hatchery near Gairloch was reopened after a multimillion pound investment.

Hendrix Genetics' Inverkerry Hatchery is the sole supplier of smolts for Organic Sea Harvest. Separated by the Inner Sound (between Skye and the mainland), you can see Gairloch from the OSH sea sites and it's just a couple of hours steam by boat between the two.

In 2019, Organic Sea Harvest signed a multimillion-pound investment and collaboration deal with Hendrix-Genetics to redevelop the hatchery - which was built in the mid 1980s - to suit the organic-related requirements of OSH and offer the best possible environment to the fish in their first stages of life.

The redeveloped Inverkerry Hatchery was officially opened by Scottish Rural Affairs Secretary Mairi Gougeon MSP on the 23rd August 2022.
