A successful Tarbert Seafood Festival, held on the shores of Loch Fyne recently, attracted a healthy mixture of tourists and locals, celebrating the best of the Clyde’s fresh seafoods and celebrating the port’s fishing heritage.

Jonny Walker and Stacey Cameron from the Clyde Fisherman’s Trust helped to feed festival-goers through the day.

Centre stage was the Clyde Fishermen’s Trust (CFT) van, which served up the best fresh langoustine available, as well as providing workshops for youngsters attending the event, with a chance to learn more about the area’s fisheries, fishing heritage, flora and fauna.

Elaine Whyte of the Clyde Fishermen’s Association (CFA) said: “It was an excellent day, and the CFT and CFA were proud to represent local fishing and offer our excellent seafood. Of course we were alongside other community members who work hard to always make the day an annual attraction for miles around.

“Now the team are preparing for the Festival of the Sea in Glasgow on 2 and 3 September. Come and see us there!”
