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

Sustainable Whiting

Cornish Whiting has been a species recommended as sustainable for a long time. The waters around our coast benefit from healthy stocks that are responsibly fished.

Sustainable Lemon Sole

Sustainable Lemon Sole

Lemon Sole is landed in significant volumes around the south west coast and is an important commercial species. It is fished for by beam trawl and demeral trawl as well as netted. We source net caught, day boat lemon sole as this is the most sustainable catch method.

Sustainable Dover Sole

Sustainable Dover Sole

Thanks to this successful sole recovery plan, populations are healthy in our area and Dover sole is 'Recommended' on the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide.

Sustainable Brill

Sustainable Brill

Brill is a great sustainable choice - 'Recommended' by the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide!

Sustainable Turbot

Sustainable Turbot

More information is required about this highly valued fish before we can be certain that current levels are sustainable, which is why it is not currently in the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide. We only recommend it as an occasional treat, and a great alternative that definitely is sustainable, is Brill.

Sustainable Gurnard

Sustainable Gurnard

They are fast growing and abundant fish, landed along the south west coast daily, using gill nets and demersal and beam trawls. When landed by demersal trawl and netted, they are 'Recommended' by The Cornwall Good Seafood Guide, and these are the fish that we source.
