Party sought for rainbow trout farm

A new organisation is being sought to run a farm which supplies fish to the Island's reservoirs.

The Department of Environment, Food & Agriculture is looking for a qualified party to run the freshwater fish farm at Cornaa near Maughold on the east coast of the Island following the previous tenant's recent departure.

The succesful party for the government-owned site would be required to provide just under 20,000 rainbow trout a year between the minimum sizes of 2Ib and 7Ib and deliver them to the Islands six reservoirs under a DEFA programme.

Any interested parties are being invited to submit expressions of interest to the online government procurement portal before the deadline at Noon on Friday, August 21.
