Twenty fishy friends will be hiding around Lowestoft as part of a new summer trail which launches this weekend.
Leading the gang is Freddie the Fish, who made his first public appearance at the Summer Festival on the seafront last Saturday.
He was joined by the team from Lowestoft Vision, which is organising the Find Freddie the Fish and Friends trail, along with local businesses who are taking part.
The trail will start this Sunday, July 30, with an official launch event at the Britten Centre from 11am to 3pm. Visitors will have the chance to bag themselves £250 worth of vouchers to spend in the Britten Centre, simply by catching a winning fish.
Leaflets and maps for the trail are now available at shops in London Road North, Bevan Street and the High street, as well as tourist spots and information can also be found on the Discover Lowestoft website.

The fish were created by Lowestoft-based Scenic Projects, with each colourfully designed and with its own unique name.
Nick Garrod, managing director of Scenic Projects, which is also a sponsor, said: 'The designs have been challenging for both the designers and artists, but they have really enjoyed working on these wonderful fun characters. It is not often we get chance to show off some of our work in our home town and we hope that the children and families that join the trail to find Freddie and his friends will have as much fun as we all have at Scenic.'

The trail continues until Sunday, September 3.
