Fancy some locally-caught, tasty Cornish fish for tea but not sure how to choose what’s ‘good’? Help is at hand in the form of the new Cornwall Good Seafood Guide which has just been launched by Cornwall Wildlife Trust. It is packed with information on fish species and fishing methods, and even features a directory of where to buy quality seafood so we can all make informed choices and eat more sustainable, locally-caught seafood. The new online guide aims to provide a user-friendly resource to encourage locals and visitors alike to buy Cornish. It can be found at www.cornwallgoodseafoodguide.org.uk
The Cornish fishing industry is something we should all be proud of, but knowing what fish to buy is a complicated issue. The Trust’s Cornwall Good Seafood Guide is an incredible new resource that will constantly be updated so that consumers as well as those in the fishing and food industries can plainly see what’s best and most sustainable to eat.
Here’s some ‘top tips for how to choose ‘good’ local seafood:
- Always ask for locally caught Cornish seafood that is in season,
- Always ask how it was caught,
- Be open to trying something different.
