Liz Barron-Majerik, Lantra’s Scotland Director, said the awards helped highlight the extensive contributions that land-based and aquaculture industries made to Scotland’s economy, particularly in rural areas: “Our ALBAS are known for celebrating the hard work and achievements of the most talented students, trainees, mentors, training providers and secondary schools in Scotland’s land-based and aquaculture sector.”

She said it was a privilege to hear some of the incredible stories of the people involved adding that the independent judges always had a difficult time deciding who would be the winners from such a strong field.

“While we had to run the ALBAS as a virtual event last year, this time around we’re especially looking forward to meeting everyone in person again at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dunblane Hydro on the evening of Thursday 3rd March 2022.”

She said that the closing date for nominations was Friday 3rd December, adding that they could be placed by wither calling Lantra on 01738 310364, emailing [email protected] or by visiting
