Salmon farmer Mowi Scotland has introduced a new management structure for its Western Isles and Skye region, under direction of regional seawater manager Kris Laird.

Connie Pattillo is promoted to area manager for Uist and Barra. Pattillo, who has a marine biology degree from Stirling University, began her time at Mowi in the cleaner fish division, before joining the health team for region north and later taking on farm management responsibilities.

David Gray moves from Western Isles seawater management to focus specifically on Mowi’s seawater farming operations on Skye as area manager for the island.
