Marine Harvest Scotland has submitted its application for a £80m, fish feed plant on the site of the quarry at Kyleakin. The application includes assessments of transport, noise and wildlife as well as the potential impact on the Marine Protected Area. The site at Altanavaig (or Allt Anavig) quarry, is more than large enough to accommodate the development which will include the feed plant itself as well as raw material storage silos, product storage and packaging, a loading area and car parking. Construction of the plant will take between a year and eighteen months and the plant could be up and running as early as 2018, depending on the planning process.
