We are currently looking to identify a Skipper to work at the Company’s Seawater site on the Isle of Muck. Muck is the smallest of four main islands in the Small Isles, part of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland.


The farm currently consists of 12 x 120m circular pens. The farm has been in operation since 2014 and has since gone on to produce some of Mowi’s greatest results globally. The site is serviced by a 20m landing craft built in 2014 and provides full support to the farm by carrying out a variety of farming tasks.


The successful candidate will work closely with the Farm Manager / Assistant Farm Manager to provide an operational plan. This post is offered on a full time, permanent basis.
