Can anyone tell me where the Mackeral come from that arrive in the North East of Scotland. Do they come round from Ireland and over the top of Scotland or do the come from South East England up to us? I am a bit confused as I thought they came from the South East of England and there are some suggestions that they arrive from the North. Had a look on the internet about migration routes and cannot find a thing except how to cook Mackeral. So when they do arrive I can barbecue/curry/smoke/steam/poach/grill but I need to satisfy my thirst for knowledge before I fill my stomach!
