“Existing Ahabeg salmon farm doubled in size”

Ahabeg Salmon Farm

Ahabeg Salmon Farm

Resident Tim Hanley sends this interesting information about the existing salmon farm at Ahabeg / Roancarrig, Adrigole, Bantry Bay, run by Marine Harvest:

“I am concerned about the exisisting fish farm across from ahabeg, in the last few weeks the site has doubled from 9 rings to many more,  I live close by , no one has ever given me information on this massive expansion,  the local piers water quality is not the best,  I certainly support your campaign.”

  1. This happened at Inishfarnard in the Kenmare RIver – there were 6 cages tucked away between Kilcatherine point and Inishfarnard – this rose to 18 at one point – there are now 14 . When they increased the number of cages they moved them out into the Bay so they are highly visible – I don’t think they have a licence for this many cages.
