Join the Tweed at the Border Union Show this weekend
2019 is International Year of the Salmon, and we will be celebrating all things Atlantic Salmon at this year’s Show
- The Tweed Foundation will be running a children’s quiz on the salmon life cycle – see if you can successfully navigate the dangers that fish face as they travel down the river in an effort to reach the sea!
- We’ll explain what salmon and trees have in common…..
- You’ll have the chance to win a large side of smoked wild Tweed salmon – perfect for a summer party! And, for the younger ones, chocolate Salmon and fish-shaped cushions are on offer.
- There will be badges and fish hats to make, and see if you can successfully complete our fiendish salmon jigsaw. We’ll have a tank full of live fish too.
- The River Tweed Commission and Fisheries Management Scotland will be joining us on the Stand to answer your queries, and all of our staff will be available to have a chat.
