Scotland: Storm destroys nets - 50,000 salmon escaped fish farm - News Abroad

Around 50,000 salmon swam from the Scottish fish farm after a severe storm. Another 30,000 salmon died in the storm as reported by the Mavi Company.

Hurricane “Ellen” a few days ago in Scotland tore off anchor bolts, tore up ropes and destroyed the net cages of the fish farm. A total of 550,000 salmon were housed at the facility near Aran Island near Glasgow. According to Mavi, 125,900 were ultimately rescued from the destroyed net enclosure system.

The biggest shock to the company was the force with which the wind would tear the ropes. The rope holding the net enclosures is 4.8 cm in diameter. They must have a really high tear strength and withstand a load of 90 tons – but they are tired. Mavi then sent the ropes for testing according to his statements.

On Wednesday night, Hurricane “Francis”, called “Kirsten” in Germany, upset the British parts of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Hundreds of houses were swept away, trees fell and railway lines blocked. Rescuers had to bring campers and senior citizens to safety.
