Cooke Strengthens Orkney Seawater Leadership Team

Due to the continued growth of our Orkney operations, we have taken the opportunity to bolster our seawater leadership team in Orkney.

From 1 March experienced Orkney Area Manager Robert (Timbo) Peterson will retain overall responsibility for Orkney with specific focus on production sites off the mainland and Hoy, while Stewart Rendall will take on the newly created role of North Isles Manager.

Stewart has gained a lot of expertise in successfully managing our Westray sites – including our East Skelwick high energy site situated 2.5km from the nearest land – and will  take on responsibility for our Rousay and Stronsay sites which occupy more exposed locations around the Orkney coast with similar sea conditions to those in Westray.

Colin Blair, Managing Director of Cooke Aquaculture Scotland said: “We are excited about these changes and I am confident having Timbo and Stewart in place will enable us to maximise production within our crucial Orkney operations, particularly in our organic and Label Rouge lines”.
