Donna Fordyce, chief executive of Seafood Scotland, added: “The seafood sector is at the heart of the Peterhead community and is of significant value to the local economy, as well as the rest of Scotland.
“SeaFest Peterhead offers a fantastic opportunity to celebrate this, and Seafood Scotland, as part of the steering committee, has been working with the organisers to ensure the festival demonstrates the importance of this sector.
“As part of our involvement, we’re hosting a marquee which will feature cookery demonstrations and top-quality Scottish seafood for people to sample. We’ll be showing attendees the variety of seafood available and how to create healthy, nutritious, and economical dishes for all the family. We hope to see locals and visitors from further afield come along and enjoy what is sure to be a great celebration of the Scottish seafood industry.”
