Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust
Fishstock are delighted that the charity Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust have agreed to spend the day on site running children's activities and events with children of all ages. Their creative workshops provide not only a fun but also educational experience for children of all ages.
MSC Fish and Kids
We all love a trip to the seaside, but how many of us stop to think about the problem of overfishing? Kids love fish fingers, but do they know where fish comes from? One of the aims of the Fish & Kids project is to teach children about marine life and the need to protect the oceans. By choosing MSC-labeled fish, families can support sustainable fishing and play their part in protecting the oceans.
Fishing for Litter - Brixham
This year sees a chance for the children to consider the affect of litter within the waters off the Devon and South West coast. Fishstock have teamed up with staff from Plymouth University Marine Biology Dept to give the children the chance to dress up as scientists and consider the impact that the litter has on marine life. The Fish for Litter Scheme started in Cornwall has now extended to Brixham and local fishermen have been involved in the scheme for some time. This ties in nicely with the children having fun, getting messy, whilst considering the importance of the marine environment.
Fishstock are excited that Wizz-bang have again agreed to provide hours of children's fun in the form of Clowns, Balloon Sculpture, Plate Spinning and more.
This year we see the return of:
Funtasia- Bouncy Inflatable Galleon
Fishy face painting
Brixham Primary Schools project displays
and much, much more ....
