In September 2016 Marine Scotland Science performed a survey of the Rubha Mor Farm along with a detailed survey of the foreshore around Loch Creran. In this report we present the results of a further survy of the Rubha Mor Farm, surveys of all other oyster farms in Loch Creran, as well as further foreshore surveys.

MSS (LB, GH) visited Shian Fisheries Ltd at South Shian (Figure 1.1). They currently rent out part of their site to another business who are managing approximately 100 trestles for Pacific oysters. These lie to the east of the small jetty located in front of the farm house (Figure 1.2). Current site practise to manage bio-fouling includes turning bags on a monthly basis. To the west of the jetty and extending further round the bay lie around 600 unfarmed trestles. These lie on very muddy ground (Figure 1.3). Both areas of trestles were surveyed (Figure 1.4). The furthest set of trestles were not surveyed as the mud was deemed unsafe to walk on. Shian Fisheries mentioned that strong currents flow past the section of managed trestles, while the area of unfarmed trestles is sheltered.
