Fishing in Cornwall

Sustainable Cod

Sustainable Cod

There is little doubt that Cod as a species has been over-exploited across the globe, and stocks do need to be managed carefully to ensure a sustainable future. Stocks in Cornwall have been under pressure over recent years, and as such we source MSC Certified Cod from the Shetland Island's, to give the South West Fishery some time to recover.

Sustainable Monkfish

Sustainable Monkfish

Landings of monkfish around the Cornish coast have been stable over recent years, although studies of stock levels are limited. The studies that have been carried out have shown that the stocks are healthy and increasing.

Provenance and Sustainability of Hake

Provenance and Sustainability of Hake

Since the introduction of a Hake Recovery Plan in the late 1990’s, fishing for Hake was strictly controlled and now, I am delighted to say, that stocks are far larger than they have been for many years. The recovery has been so marked, that in 2015 the Cornish Hake gill net fishery was certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council

Sustainable Whiting
