Scottish salmon farming company, Loch Duart, has appointed a new chairman. Alistair Erskine, a Scottish seafood industry expert, is taking over from Dr Andrew Barbour, who has chaired the company since 2008 having joined as a non-executive director in 2002.

It is a significant year for the independent Scottish business, which is about to mark 20 years of farming its award winning salmon.

Alban Denton, managing director of Loch Duart, said that the company was fortunate to be appointing Mr Erskine. “Alistair’s industry insight and commercial acumen is widely known. He has long been at the forefront of the seafood sector, having previously owned the Edinburgh Salmon Company (ESC) which he built into one of the largest salmon processors in the Scottish Highlands,” he said.

Mr Erskine has previously managed J W Seafoods, seafood processors Allen & Dey and salmon farming company, Highland Fish Farmers.

On his new appointment Mr Erskine commented, “It’s an exciting time to be joining Loch Duart and I look forward to working with them as the business continues to grow and build on its reputation for extraordinary salmon which is loved around the world. I have a passion for the seafood sector and look forward to bringing my experience of running businesses in salmon farming, salmon processing and smoking to support this amazing company and brand.”
