Cornwall Good Seafood Guide

Good Cornish seafoodGood Cornish seafood

We have worked closely with Cornish fishermen to produce the ground breaking Cornwall Good Seafood Guide. This unique project brings us closer to achieving our vision of ‘Healthy seas supporting productive fisheries' and is here to help us all make good seafood choices.

Our Cornish fishing industry is something we should all be proud of, but knowing what fish to buy is a complicated issue. We want to address this by supporting the industry, highlighting good practices and encouraging locals and visitors alike to Buy Cornish.
