North-east aquarium set to host event to celebrate the importance of salmon

A north-east aquarium will host an event to raise awareness on the declining number of salmon stock levels.

The International Year of Salmon will be marked by a special session hosted at Macduff Marine Aquarium later this month.

The much-loved attraction has teamed up with the Deveron, Bogie and Isla Rivers Trust to host an educational event on the famed species.

The session, which is the second in a series of salmon events hosted by the aquarium, will feature special talks from experts on the past, present and future of salmon fishing in Scotland.

The guest speakers will also share their knowledge on topics such as current conservation strategies.

Visitors will have the opportunity to view rarely seen footage of salmon behaviours as well as enjoying the opportunity to explore the aquarium after hours and talk to scientists.

There is a growing concern that the natural population of the species may be in a state of collapse. Last year, the lowest ever levels of wild salmon catches were reported in Scotland.

This global initiative hopes to raise awareness on the issue to stimulate research that could potentially help their habitats.

The event is set to take place on Thursday, September 26, from 6.30pm-9.30pm. Spaces are limited and booking is recommended.
