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.

“Johnny is the best fishmonger I have ever had, without a doubt. Thank you for all your help and advice when needed. If only all suppliers could be as passionate about their products as you are about your fish. Are you sure you aren’t a chef?!”
