From sea to plate – schoolkids tour Associated Seafoods

A group of third year school children from Forres Academy visited Associated Seafoods Ltd (ASL) recently as part of a fact finding trip to learn how our seafood gets from sea to plate.

The visit, which was part of Seafood Scotland’s acclaimed Seafood in Schools Project, gave the pupils who are studying Food Studies an insight into how our seafood is harvested and processed. They also learnt about the health benefits of eating seafood.

ASL Development Manager Roy Stevens said: “The pupils were very interested and keen to learn more.
“They were able to see the various steps taken, from getting the seafood off the boat to their plates. With a visit to the Buckie Fishing Heritage Centre they were able to learn more about the historical links of a strong fishing community like Buckie too.

“It was really encouraging to see the youngsters enjoying a taste of our smoked salmon and keen to have more.”
