Peterhead firm given green light for fish processing factory expansion

Northbay Pelagic has been given the green light to expand its Peterhead fish processing site that will help the firm hit new national fishing targets. Operation manager Scott McKenzie said the additional space was needed to meet the Scottish Government’s new landings obligation. Speaking at the Buchan area committee, Mr. McKenzie explained: “Scottish pelagic fleets this current year must land 30% of their catch in Scotland. Next year it will increase to 45 per cent and the year after it will be up to 55 per cent. Northbay Pelagic is one of the largest pelagic fish processors in the country. It currently processes around 25,000 tonnes of fish per year including mackerel and herring. – >>click to read<< 07:07
