Loch Duart Salmon Healthy Homes

Salmon need clean nets so that they have clean, healthy, oxygenated water to live in.

A simple, natural solution for Loch Duart salmon

At Loch Duart the ‘Swim Through’ is our preferred method of cleaning our nets, avoiding the use of anti-foulants.

The fish swim into a clean empty pen as the nets they are in are raised, the marine growths weighing down the original net dry and fall back into the water. Thus what comes from the sea goes back to the sea, a natural method that is better for the environment.
