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.

“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.”
