There’s an opening lunch of Orkney seafood to follow the session on sustainable fisheries research, and the afternoon looks at further aspects of the sea for the future.
After the first of the afternoon talks comes a tea break provided by Orkney Fair Trade Group, with the opportunity to enjoy some local cakes and biscuits and browse amongst some Orkney food books and Fair Trade products. There will be further afternoon tea breaks on Friday, and on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the week following.
On Friday the lunches of Orkney fare in the Peedie Kirk Hall begin. The lunches take place over six days, with each day a varied mix of items to choose from – salmon, beef, cheese, savouries, cakes, with tea and coffee to follow and at 1 pm the daily One O’Clock Toast to a well-known Orcadian.
