Shearwater Marine have supported the aquaculture industry since 1992 and are one of the few companies left continuing to do so.Our dive teams have carried out all the duties required to keep farms running smoothly, including mooring installation and inspection, net checks, mortality removal, installation of airlift systems, seabed surveys and salvage.
Shearwater have a long history of diving & marine support within the Aquaculture industry. They have covered contracts as far afield as Egypt, Greece, Italy, Denmark and Ireland as well as support to the West Coast farms in Scotland.
Original operations involved the removal of mortalities on a daily basis, from the local fish farms of Lighthouse of Scotland and Landcatch based on Loch Fyne, but started to move further afield with the installation of airlift systems to the then Joseph Johnston sites in Scourie, Sutherland.
Other customers in this period included Fanad Fisheries, Donegal.Mannin Bay Salmon, Galway. GSP, Oban. Marine Harvest, Aultbea. Aquascot, Tarbert.
We continue to provide dive support for many of our original customers from the early 90's.
As a West of Scotland company, aquaculture is still important to our business and we continue to aim to provide a quality service to this industry, fluctuation in salmon prices and changes within the industry itself, often mean that the diving contractor has to be flexible and assist the customer in any way it can to ensure the continued success of the individual sites.
