Seafood champions wanted for festival event

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, is encouraging local seafood businesses and customers to contact the East Grampian Coastal Partnership (EGCP).

The EGCP is currently researching the possibility of bringing together local “Seafood Champions” for a seafood festival and Seafood Trail project in order to promote the local seafood culture.

The EGCP is asking that Seafood businesses be submitted through an online survey, in order to gain more information on the prospects of establishing a Seafood Trail.

This project aims to encourage consumers to support the North-east coastal communities by visiting the seafood businesses which will feature on the Seafood Trail.

Mr Stevenson said: “North-east Scotland is known for excellent seafood. This initiative is a great way to recognise and celebrate our local restaurants, chippies, and seafood suppliers.”

“I encourage everyone to submit their favourite seafood place.”
