Someone told me that waste from the smelter was taken out by barge to be dumped in the Moray Firth (as if that was a good idea) but that they used to start dropping it before they got out through the Sutors and that this had destroyed the fishing. Comments?

THAT IS CORRECT, I WAS AT THE SALMON FISHING THAT YEAR DOWN THE COAST AT TARREL FOR MY UNCLE WILLIE PATERSON. I STAYED DOWN AT THE BOTHY EVERY MORNING AROUND 4 THE BARGE WOULD DO A U TURN OF ROCKFIELD AND HEAD BACK. THEY DUMPED OUT ON THAT BANK FOR A LONG TIME.

Hi Charlie. Nothing at all. Maybe you don't know, but on the net messages typed all in capitals are seen as shouting, hence my joke.
