Chloe Porteous (17), Nick Duffy (16) and Paul Woodcock (16) all from Glenrothes Fife learned about fish and shellfish at the Royal Highland Show yesterday.

They were visiting the Seafood in Schools stand where they were told how fish is processed and how it arrives on your plate. They handled live species of some fish and shellfish and models of others.

Seafood in Schools is a project that aims to teach children about Scottish seafood; where it comes from, how it reaches our plates, and why eating seafood is good for us.  It is funded by Scottish Government, Seafish, Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation, the Scottish Fishermen’s Trust and the Scottish Whitefish Producers’ Association, and also relies on in-kind contributions and involvement by the fishing and aquaculture industries.
