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.

Sustainable Lobster

Sustainable Lobster

We are really proud of the provenance and quality of our Cornish lobster. We have close relationships with a small number of fishermen and many of them land directly to us. Not only that we provide them with bait for their pots in the form of our fish frames and waste. This is a real win win as it eliminates the need for us to dispose of our waste and provides our fishermen with free bait.
