After a long and arduous search for the right person to fulfill the meticulous and detailed role of hatchery and site manager at Torre we selected Kelvin for this exciting opportunity after a very impressive and confident interview. His education at Sparsholt as well as his fish farming training, experience and personality stood out a mile.
A baptism of fire awaited Kelvin for his 6 month probation period as we headed into one of the hottest and driest summers for decades. This also coincided with staffing problems which meant he had to learn the role fast in a pressurised environment. Other hurdles that awaited Kelvin included fish health and spotting any symptoms as early as possible, getting to grips with the constant change of flow that come with a spate river as well as the large varieties of trout that all behave, feed and grow differently.
He has also tackled the daunting prospect of training and managing people who are older and younger than himself and come out with flying colours.
Now he is a vital cog in the business and has now accepted the offer to become a partner in the employee owned business.
Welcome to the family Kelvin and thanks for your hard work!
