Pupils from Brechin High School and the surrounding primaries were given the first chance to taste and cook fish when the Seafood in Schools project launched last week.

The event saw Scottish chef Nick Nairn cook an Asian monkfish broth on the first day, with fellow chef Alexandria Hay making salmon carbonara on the second.

Pupils had a chance to prepare the dishes for themselves as High school students paired up with primary youngsters. Angus college also sent cookery students along to help out.

The project aims to educate pupils on the health benefits of fish as well as the importance of conservation and how fish make it from sea to place.

Seafood in Schools project manager Nicki Holmyard said: “Brechin have pulled out all the stops. The headmaster and head of home economics have been very enthusiastic. All kids have really loved it.”

BBC Landward filmed during the first day and it is expected to air on October 5.
