Robaidh Halliday - Farms Manager
Robaidh, from Uig, worked as a commercial fisherman on both creel boats and trawlers before starting his career in the aquaculture industry. He progressed quickly from a general technician to a senior technician role.
After joining Organic Sea Harvest in April 2020, Robaidh was appointed Farm Manager of the Invertote site in September 2020.
Robaidh has completed SVQ's in Aquaculture through the University of the Highlands & Islands (Inverness College), which has allowed him to progress his career in the industry. He has always had a keen interest in working at sea and the aquaculture industry has allowed him to continue working at sea, but with a good work/family balance - he's been able to bring up his family (with three young children) on his home island.
Robaidh is a very family oriented man and enjoys spending his time off with his family.
Euan McArthur - Farms Development Manager
Euan has worked in the aquaculture industry since 1989, starting his career at the freshwater Strathaird Farms based on Skye. Euan moved to the sea water site as a Farm Technician and over the past thirty years has served as site manager and as an area manager.
A native of Skye, Euan is married and has two grown up daughters, both of who still live on the island. His parents own a shop in Portree (known locally as 'Harry's') with the family business also offering a home delivery service, previously with their own mobile grocery vans.
On leaving Portree High School, Euan attended Ellwood Agriculture College. He remains an active crofter and has farmed a Suckler herd with his family for the past 34 years.
With this background, Euan says that health and wellbeing is the most important part of farming, alongside working within the communities on Skye.
