“Fabulous and rare opportunity.”

The Isle of Man Government, UK, is seeking out new tenants for its only fish farm.

SalmonBusiness reported in February that US-based Troutlodge that would not renew its lease of the government-owned fish farm at Cornaa, which rears around 20,000 rainbow trout a year for angling purposes.

Its main incubation centre and broodstock farm Glen Wyllin trout farm operation on the Isle of Man, UK, was also “under discussion”.

Agriculture Minister Geoffrey Boot described taking over the new site as “a fabulous and rare opportunity to take on the Island’s only active fish farm where there is the chance for these activities to be carried out in conjunction with a more expansive business operation.’

The deadline for applications is 21 August.
