Steelhead Rainbow Trout Farming & Production

Our rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) are farmed in the crystal clear waters of Scotland's famous sea lochs. Over 5 decades of experience and dedication, result in the finest Scottish Trout, which we are proud to sell in the UK's finest restaurants and export worldwide.

Fish Farming Consultancy & Troubleshooting

As pioneers of fish farming in Scotland and having worked with over 45 different marine species, we are experts in aquaculture and have a wealth of industry knowledge. We consult on national and international projects.

Marine Equipment Design & Manufacture

Our unique position as both farmers and equipment suppliers means our advice is based on real hands on experience. Our business is not the hard sell and then let you get on with it but a true close working relationship to ensure your fish farming business is a success.



Kames was established in 1972 with offices on the West Coast of Scotland and has been farming Steelhead Rainbow Trout for over 45 years and through 5 decades.


Alongside the farming side of our business we operate a fish farming equipment supply and installation service ranging from fish cages and moorings to jetties and rafts for both aquaculture and the leisure sector.

Our fish farming experience dates from the very start of commercial aquaculture in the UK, where we pioneered the farming of trout in fresh and saltwater cages later moving on to warm water marine species such as Sea Bream and Sea Bass in the Mediterranean. More recently, in Scotland, we have added Atlantic Salmon and Halibut

to the range of species we have farmed in marine

offshore cages.

Kames is the oldest family owned fish farm in Scotland.
