The ‘Eat Fresh Fish Fair,’ held in Mgarr, Gozo, on Saturday evening, attracted large crowds of all ages, who were able to enjoy free tasting sessions, cookery demonstrations, a kids area, including the Little Fun Bus and jigsaw puzzles, as well as free boat trips, which proved to be very popular, and of course the wide variety of fish on display.
The Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture thanked everyone who visited the event. This campaign is aimed at promoting the benefits of eating fresh fish as part of a healthy diet.
The Eat Fresh Fish campaign is an EU co-funded project led by the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture and supported by relevant stakeholders and project partners such as Ghaqda Koperattiva tas-Sajd, the Malta Chef Society, St. Peter Foundation, the Fishing Trawlers Association, fish4tomorrow, the Federation of Maltese Aquaculture Producers and Kooperattiva Nazzjonali tas-Sajd. The campaign is co-financed at 75% EU Funds and 25% National Funds.
Fresh fish is one of the healthiest foods suitable for all ages, and therefore it is an important part of everyone’s diet. Fresh fish is the major source of omega 3 fats, high in good quality protein and low in saturated fat. It is also rich in nutrients such as Vitamin D and selenium.
