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.

“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”
