Sustainability

We want our children’s children to enjoy the ample stocks of seafood we have now, whilst also doing our bit to maintain a sustainable and stable fishing industry in Cornwall.

By buying from Cornish day boats run by responsible fishermen and working with industry partners we actively help encourage ethical choices in seafood in order to help preserve our oceans. 

One of these partners the ‘Cornwall Good Seafood Guide’ run by the ‘Cornwall Wildlife Trust’ use their expert knowledge to provide clear and accurate information, helping consumers and businesses make environmentally informed decisions when purchasing Cornish seafood, characteristics that we also abide by here.

However, sustainability goes far beyond just fishing, education is key.  We actively visit local schools teaching children about seafood, flavours and where their seafood comes from, also local apprenticeship schemes are run in order to help set up internal training paths to develop our employees.

All of this and more we believe will inevitably help create a more sustainable future for our children.

“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?!”

Wishing you all a Happy New Year.

 

Due to the new tier restrictions taking place country wide we have had to make the difficult decision that we will not be opening the business as planned on the 4th of January.

 

We will instead be monitoring the tier systems, when they look like they will be eased we will look at setting a date for reopening the business.  Please bear with us. This is a horrible but unprecedented time, and will be taking this opportunity to carry out some needed refurbishment to the factory to continue our search for perfection. Your support as always has been incredible and for this we are truly humbled. We can’t wait to get back to it and servicing you with the best that Cornwall has to offer.

 

Our best wishes go out to you and your teams and look forward to seeing you soon.

Take care and stay safe.

Johnny and the Flying Fish Team
