PRINCE CHARLES OPENS LERWICK FISHMARKET

August 2, 2021
The Prince of Wales looked quintessentially Scottish as he received his tour around Lerwick’s new Fishmarket.

After multiple delays due to COVID-19, His Royal Highness has finally visited the Shetland isles last Friday to formally open the new £7.6m Fishmarket. Accompanying the Prince on his tour was John Henderson from Ocean Kinetics, Calum Grains from Lerwick Port Authority, Steven Coutts from Shetland Islands Council and Brian Isbister from Shetland Fish Producers.

HRH was impressed with multi-million-pound facility, including the modern fish handling equipment and auction hall. He stated,“It still remains, to me anyway, an amazing statistic to know that more fish pass through the Shetland Isles than England, Northern Ireland and Wales put together.”

Prince Charles finished his tour by conversating with local industry workers over a glass of Scottish whisky.

The Duke also visited the NAFC, Lerwick Town Hall and Uradale Farm during his Shetland trip.
