SCOTLAND’S minister for Brexit Mike Russell dropped in at the Seafood Expo in Brussels this morning to talk to some of the companies based in his Argyll and Bute constituency.
Russell, en route to a meeting with EU counterparts in the Belgian capital, spent 40 minutes at the Scottish pavilion, and visited Scottish Sea Farms, Loch Fyne Oysters and the Scottish Salmon Company.
Su Cox, sales and communications director at the SSC, showed the minister her firm’s Native Hebridean salmon.
‘It was nice to see him here and quite right for him to be supporting the industry,’ she said. ‘It’s an important business for Scotland…and we are lucky to have such a wonderful product.’
