This venture was supported by Welsh government grants but it’s now been sold at a loss. The Wales Audit Office says that the grants were badly managed. The new owner, Anglesey Aquaculture, supplies the catering trade and it claims to be farming sustainably. You might choose to watch the company’s blog. You might choose to cook seabass – it’s good eating.
I think that aquaculture could be a great way forward for Britain and for other countries around the world. But not if it involves discharging effluent into legally-protected sea, and depriving fish of oxygen, as the Penmon site’s previous owner did.
