Teithel Beach

Dominated by industrial manufacturing of aquaculture pens for salmon farming, produced by Gaelforce Fusion.

Manufacturing of plastic fish farm infrastructure items has been occuring on this beach for a couple of decades. Masses of plastic waste from manufacturing process has been allowed to enter the loch all this time. Evidence of this pollution can be found along various sections of the loch shore, not just along this beach..

The worst pollutants are swarf from scraping, sawing and drilling of plastics on the beach. This swarf is picked up by the tide and washed away into the waters of the loch. Frayed ropes break up and strands again end up in the loch.
