Scottish oysters, commonly touted as aphrodisiacs, are farmed on some of the most pristine fish farms while bathing in fresh and salt water from very clean, unpolluted sources, said the top British commissioner Hasif Ahmad. The British envoy, during a visit to Rainforest Seafoods, the largest exporter of fish and shellfish in the Caribbean, underlined that it is possible to increase the seafood trade between Jamaica and Scotland , due to the island’s constant demand, especially for Scottish Salmon and Oysters.
The High Commissioner was on his second official fact-finding mission to the western town of Montego Bay recently when he said demand for Scottish seafood can be attributed in large part to the influence Jamaican tourism industry.
“Scotland is pretty underpopulated. The way currents and rivers and the like work, it gets refreshed anytime. The oysters that are here, they’ve had their own bath … freshwater and saltwater from very clean and unpolluted sources. These products are highly regarded. They are not overfished. They are subject to quality control. The brand is promoted so that people know what they are eating, “he said. -he explains.
“Rainforest has a long-standing relationship with the UK, bringing salmon, oysters and mussels from Scotland. Originally it was wild salmon (exported from Scotland), but demand has made it really possible to do it that way. actually requires raising salmon in a way that preserves the essence of the fish, but it is done in a way that reduces disease and other things. So you actually get farmed salmon, which is of very high quality, ”Ahmad added.
The High Commissioner also congratulated the directors of Rainforest Seafood for operating within the framework of the principles of sustainable fishing. He warned that Jamaica’s fishing trade will only continue to thrive as long as the island remains committed to establishing its own direct trade routes to its international buyers and suppliers and does not get involved in trade wars.
“If they are innocently drawn into trade wars between giants, you have to somehow navigate them … which is why the UK has always believed in free and unfettered trade as The answer to trade disputes is to settle them so as not to raise tariffs, ”he said.
