Fin Clipping Underway – Volunteers welcome!

The fin-clipping of the autumn parr is underway with 16,000 adipose fins clipped in just 2 days, thanks to hard work of the ghillies who gave up their free time to help, which is greatly appreciated.   Volunteers to help with the clipping or fish handling would be more than welcome to come along.  The fin-clipping takes place each evening between 6:0pm and 8:00pm at the Sandbank Hatchery, Glenlivet.

For further information, please contact Ballindalloch Ghillie, Steve Brand or Hatchery Manager, Jimmy Woods (01807 590467).
