A fish farm company has started legal action to stop an anti-salmon campaigner visiting its sites covertly.
Scottish Sea Farms (SSF) has applied to Oban Sheriff Court for a court order against Don Staniford, a high profile activist who is director of Scamon Scotland.
SSF is seeking an interim order that would prohibit Staniford and his associates from coming within 15 metres of its property, flying drones over the sites, and using underwater drones in the site areas.
The salmon company argues that Staniford’s incursions on to fish farms are unlawful, and that his conduct poses a risk to the safety and well-being of the company’s staff.
