Tell us about your Seafood Champions
East Grampian Coastal Partnership wants you to help us find the best seafood in Aberdeenshire. Do you have a favourite restaurant which serves seafood? How about your local chippie? Do you know a decent fishmonger where you can find fresh local fish? We would love you to share the secret with us! The easiest way to do this is to fill out our simple and quick questionnaire online. You can find it at here.
The Partnership is hoping to bring all your Seafood Champions together in a Seafood Trail network through which these fantastic places could be promoted. There is a wealth of excellent shellfish and fish in the area, many of which are not as popular or well known as they deserve to be.
“We trust the Seafood Champions will help us develop a seafood culture in Aberdeenshire, whereby consumers appreciate the abundance and high quality of local produce and choose to support local coastal communities by visiting fantastic establishments which feature on the Seafood Trail” explains Ela Nowakowska, the project’s intern.
The Seafood Trail initiative is a venture put forward by the East Grampian Coastal Partnership (EGCP) and funded by the Aberdeenshire European Fisheries Fund (AEFF). It will be delivered in partnership with Aberdeenshire Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG), in association with the Scottish Seafood Association and the Peterhead and Fraserburgh Fish Processors Association.
The present investigation will go toward a funding bid to create a formal Aberdeenshire Seafood trail and potentially a Seafood festival
