Falmouth Oyster Festival given a fishy flavour

The Falmouth Oyster Festival, 16-19 October, will this year be featuring the 'Fish Forever' campaign as part of its attractions. The Objective One Fisheries Programme has invested in the 'Fish Forever' campaign, which is also supported by Seafish. This follows hot on the heels of successes at the Royal Cornwall Show, Newlyn Fish Festival and the Newquay Fish Festival held in September.

'Fish Forever' has a stand dedicated to the promotion of fish. There will be a wet fish display showing the diverse range of species caught off the coast of Cornwall and Seabourne Fish are providing an on-site wet fish shop. The 'activity' stand will be giving demonstrations on how to prepare fish including filleting and local chefs will be challenged to produce a fish dish in the style of "Ready Steady Cook!" from fresh available ingredients.

A fish auction will be held on Friday 17 October at 5:00pm and again on Sunday 19 October at 3:00pm. It is hoped that the people of Falmouth will get behind the fishing industry and learn more about the fantastic range of fish landed in Cornwall and many more people will be encouraged to eat more fish!

Alison Elvey, Objective One Fisheries Programme Manager, said: "Promoting the benefits of fish, showing people how to cook it and providing information on the fishing industry will benefit everyone in the industry. I hope as many people in the industry get involved in the festival as possible."

If you would like to get involved in this important event to promote fish please contact Fiona Osman 01872 270333.
