Shetland's troubled salmon farming industry has been dealt a further blow with the news that another company has gone into receivership.
The company is the latest to report problems
Bressay Salmon was forced to call in the receivers because of rising debts and poor prices for fish.
The company, which grows 300,000 salmon under contract, is the fourth to report problems in the last two months.
Management at Bressay Salmon said there was no immediate threat to jobs at the company.
Earlier this month, BBC Scotland revealed that more than £6m of public money was at risk following the collapse of SSG Seafoods, a major salmon company in the islands.
Millions of pounds of the island's oil money was poured into the company, which has contracts with about a dozen independent salmon farms in the islands to grow fish.
Industry observers in Shetland predict more companies will go into receivership in the near future as the industry shrinks and adapts to global market conditions.
Ian Bennett, of receivers Pricewaterhousecoopers, said: "We are reviewing the situation with the intention of achieving a going-concern sale if possible."
