'Fishy Tales' was a success!
Thank you to all those who joined us and helped make ‘Fishy Tales’ a success at Arran (Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST)), Skye (Skye & Lochalsh Rivers Trust) and in Gairloch (Wester Ross Fisheries Trust), and a huge thank you to Heidi, Nicola and Craig at Thunderbolts and Lightning for creating such a memorable and informative experience for everyone!
In Fishy Tales, children of all ages and their families were needed to help reunite Struana the Selkie with her family. Along the way, they learned about the weird and wonderful habitats and species in Scotland’s seas, as well as the fascinating research WOSHH is doing (and also weird… listening to herring FaRTs?) to unlock their secrets, while helping Fisherman Craig and Struana find her family. Despite Storm Babet, we were treated to a Beach Hunt Challenge, following the show, and had the opportunity to find and identify all sorts of plants and animals on the seashore.
After the success of the shows, we are hoping to get back on the road with ‘Fishy Tales’ in the future – stay tuned!
Fishy Tales was funded by NERC Growing Roots.
