Eating fish better for your health and with a clean conscience

 In Certified Fish, From Fish & Co, Info, MSC, Tom Kime

At Fish & Co. we aim to keep things simple and provide some important information about sustainable fish and seafood.

We are creatures of habit when it comes to buying fish and an easy way to take the pressure on the most popular species to look at using some delicious alternatives which are not on any environmental watch list. Our wild caught market fish of the day always makes use of alternative species such as Sea mullet, Latchet, Gurnard

Latchet and gurnard are proving very popular. These are sweet white fleshed fish that are not commercially threatened.

Eat oily fish.  Oily fish are good for us in lots of ways.  They are not just full of Omega 3 Oily fish are also a much more sustainable variety of fish to select.  Mackerel, sardines, anchovies and whitebait are all great choices.

Squid and cuttlefish are fast to reproduce and so make a much more sustainable seafood option. They are caught during the night which results in zero by catch.

Look out for the internationally respected eco label – MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) when purchasing seafood from the major supermarkets
