Herring Week

Seafood Scotland Herring Week 4th - 11th August, 2001

Seafood Scotland, the promotional body for the Scottish Seafood Industry, in conjunction with several major restaurants in Glasgow, is holding a herring week to promote one of Scotland’s finest and most historic fish.

The herring industry in Scotland goes back hundreds of years and conjures up images of fish wives at the quayside, busily packing salted herring into barrels, as part of the staple diet in Scotland, and for export all over the world.

This humble fish’s revered status amongst its captors is epitomised by its nickname, “the silver darling”. Yet nowadays, Scotland’s herring industry has modernised into a hi-tech global industry, and at this time of year, the quality of fish caught is at its best. It is for this reason that some of the major seafood restaurants in Glasgow are holding a herring promotion between the 4th and 11th of August.

This event is being run as part of the Scottish Herring Week, organised by Aberdeenshire Council, Seafish Industry Authority and supported by the Herring Buyers Association. Not only herring is a delicious fish, with a long tradition in Scotland, but is a major source of omega three oils, an essential part of the human diet.

These oils, only available in oily fish, help prevent heart disease, encourage brain development in unborn and newly born children, and have been shown to alleviate inflammatory diseases such as colitis, eczema and arthritis.

Craig Morris, Marketing Officer for Seafood Scotland stated, “Scotland, particularly on its west coast has a very poor record of heart disease. This is due to several factors, however a major contributor is a bad diet. If we can encourage people to eat more herring and oily fish, for the tasty and nutritious meal that it is, then everybody can gain.”

The Promotion is being run by the Mussel Inn 157 Hope Street St, Roganos Restaurant, Royal Exchange Square, and the Glasgow Hilton 1 William Street, between the 4th to 11th of August.

Visitors can be assured of the highest quality food and service, and herring at discounted prices in conjunction with this promotion.

Another promotion is planned in October, this time for Scottish Mussels.
