Eating sustainable fish is a key positive message that the Ocean Conservation Trust promotes. To help people to make informed sustainable choices, ‘Sound Fish: Know What You Eat’ was created.
The guide aims to connect the people of Plymouth with the seafood they eat and champion the amazing variety of local, sustainable seafood landed on our doorstep. Fifteen species are showcased and are rated as sustainable by the MCS. Not only are the species talked about, we invited some fantastic chefs to submit recipes on how best to cook these sustainable options.
The guide also celebrates the fishing heritage in Plymouth and has information for consumers on where to buy, what to look for and even recipes to encourage them to move away from the Big 5 – Cod, Tuna, Haddock, Salmon and Prawns.
How will this help the Ocean?
Overfishing and destructive fishing is causing long term effects on the Ocean. Our guide aims to showcase tasty, yet sustainable options to make sure that popular fish stocks are given time to recover.
