Public Funding of Penmon Fish Farm

18 Dec 2013 - 9:00am

Following an initial review, the Auditor General decided to extend the scope of the review to encompass the Welsh Government’s role in managing and monitoring the grantsto Penmon Fish Farm, and to publish a report that would aim to answer the question:Did the Welsh Government manage the public investment in Penmon Fish Farm in a way that maximised the benefits of the investment?

Overall, we concluded that: The Welsh Government followed its procedures for approving and monitoring grant funding of the Project. However, the procedures at that time were less robust than those in place now and were unsuited to a project of this scale, complexity and risk. Although the Project achieved its main objectives, problems arose when the fish farm began operating which caused pollution and nuisance.
