Some of you who know me are aware when not crawling around on a soggy hillside I am involved with a project to kick start a new industry in both Scotland and the UK, Scallop Ranching.
For those of you who don't know Wild King Scallops like many marine species are in decline from overfishing and as a Scallop diver I have seen this first hand. I now work alongside like minded individuals with the mindset of creating a 100% sustainable King Scallop fishery by using Scallop Ranching rather than continuing to fish the wild stocks.
We have been running for 5 years now and have completed commercial scale trials, however we are a small team and now require investment and as such we have entered into a competition run by Sir Richard Branson called "Pitch to Rich" for funding and business advice. To progress in the competition we need votes on their website, if you could please spare a coupe of minutes to vote for us on the link below it would mean the world to us as every vote brings us closer to realising our dream of creating a sustainable Scallop fishery.
There is a short video with more details of how the whole operation works on the link below where you can vote for our Pitch. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to post or PM me
