Liz Barron-Majerik, Lantra’s Scotland Director, commented: "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.

“It is a privilege to hear some of the incredible stories that people have, and I know that our independent judges always have a difficult time deciding who the winners will be from such a strong field."
