Falmouth Oyster Festival given a
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
'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
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."
