Opening Peterhead Fish Market

SWFPA chief executive Mike Park greeted HRH Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay, and discussed the progress of talks towards a new post-Brexit settlement for fisheries during his visit to formally open the new Peterhead Fishmarket on Saturday 29th September.

At a stand exhibiting the association’s work on sustainability, crew welfare, the environment, the Responsible Fisheries Scheme and the Brexit dividend, Mr Park was recognised by the Prince who stopped for a short exchange.

“He was interested in the positive work we are doing in a broad range of areas and we had a good discussion,” said Mr Park.

“The Prince has always been a champion of sustainability and his views on the environment are well known. The Scottish fishing industry has a great story to tell in this regard and we will continue to work on improving sustainability.”
