Boost for Expo as SSA confirms attendance

The Scottish Seafood Association (SSA) has confirmed it will be exhibiting once again at the Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen 2014 fisheries exhibition where they will be showcasing the very best of Scottish seafood.

The SSA stand is always a major focal point of the show, forming a hugely popular attraction for visitors keen to sample high quality Scottish seafood.

As well as promoting the sea’s harvest, this year the SSA will be highlighting its new training school in Peterhead created to enhance the skills of processors and fishermen and to encourage new entrants into the industry.

The Seafood Training Centre in Farmer’s Lane is already operational and has successfully completed its first courses.

SSA chair, Will Clark, said: “This year we will also be using the show to promote our new training centre in Peterhead that has been set up to enhance skills in processing and fishing, and also encourage new entrants to the industry. This has been a major investment by the SSA and it underlines our commitment to support our important sector.”

John Cox, SSA chief executive, added: “We are looking forward tremendously to this year’s Aberdeen expo and meeting with visitors at our popular stand.

The Skipper Expo Int will take place on May 30 and 31.
