SMOKED salmon producer Strathaird Salmon revealed in November it was planning to close its operation in Inverness with the loss of 354 city jobs.

The Seafood Company, the operating parent company of Strathaird, announced it was entering a 90-day consultation on the proposed transfer of the factory in Longman Drive to Fraserburgh.

The company said it was against a backdrop of increased energy costs, an uncertain economic climate and a resulting need to consolidate its operations.

Although the company held talks with politicians and civic and business representatives, the factory closed the following year.
