Sustainability

Let there be fish for our children’s children.

We want our children’s children to enjoy the ample stocks of seafood we have now.

So we only buy from day boats run by responsible fishermen and we vet all our suppliers for their sustainability policies. We work with industry partners to encourage ethical choices in seafood to help preserve our abundant oceans.

To put it in perspective; a year’s worth of fish from one of our boats is equal to one day’s haul from a trawler.

However sustainability goes beyond fishing. We also visit local schools to teach children about seafood, flavours and where food comes from.
We’re starting a local apprenticeship scheme and setting up internal training paths to help develop our employees.

We want to do our bit to maintain a sustainable and stable fishing industry in Cornwall.

“The Ledbury has been working with flying fish for over a decade. The quality of their fish and shellfish is outstanding. They not only understand how important consistency is but also about how the treatment of the fish plays a big part in the end product. The Service is as good as it gets and they can never do enough to help us. Johnny and the team are an essential part of our team and working with them is a privilege.”
