Some very fishy goings on down at Milne’s High School

There was something very fishy going on in Fochabers this week when over 170 pupils from Milne’s High and local primary schools were up to their eyes in Lobster and Salmon.

The youngsters were taking part in the final leg of a national tour by Seafood Scotland, who have been promoting the health benefits of seafood to pupils at schools throughout Scotland.

Demonstrating how the bounty from Scotland’s fishing industry gets from ‘sea to plate’, the Seafood Roadshow has been raising awareness of the industry to thousands of school pupils.

Milne’s High pupils set up a ‘wetfish counter’ at the school with the help of schools coordinator Ruathy Donald and Henry Angus – the commercial director at Associated Seafoods. Also involved in the event was Eric Mair from Buckie firm Eat Mair Fish.

Mr Angus said: “There is a great story to tell about Scotland’s wonderful range of sustainable and healthy seafood. It is important that our children learn about how it is produced and the vital role that fish such as salmon play in ensuring a healthy diet.”
