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.

“We’ve been using Flying Fish for a number of years now. Their experience and understanding of the seasons, fish markets and chef requirements makes them ideal partners for The Hand and Flowers. The high standard of fish we receive on a daily basis from the Cornish day boats is outstanding and is an essential part of the produce driven menu that we have here at the pub”
