There was something fishy going on at Taylor High School when the school’s home economics department hosted a visit from Seafood Scotland.

Over two days a series of interactive workshops were presented to more than 450 pupils who included not only Taylor students but also pupils from feeder primaries.

Fishmonger Wyllie McCulloch showed pupils a variety of fresh and live species, students found out how fish is processed and got the chance to handle different species including crab, lobster, langoustine, cod and haddock.

Chef Ross Murray, from the New Lanark Mill Hotel, demonstrated a cold mackerel fish starter and the event concluded with a tasting.

And Catriona Frankitti from the Fish for Health project explained why seafood is good for our health, whilst tempting pupils to try a selection of fish and shellfish.
