During the lockdown, Cornwall Good Seafood Guide, a project of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, provided a vital role in keeping Cornwall fishing by listing all fishermen and fish sellers selling direct to the public and delivering to people’s doors. They saw an incredible 69,000 new users during lockdown and were delighted to see people supporting Cornwall’s fishermen and seeking out information on sustainability.
The Cornwall Good Seafood Guide website made it easy for the public to find local fishermen willing to sell direct and local fishmongers willing to deliver fresh seafood to those who were isolating.
Abby Masterson of Cornwall Good Seafood guide said: “This has been a silver lining among the chaos of this year. Thousands have seized the chance to reconnect with their fishermen. When the supermarket shelves were laid bare and stockpiling was at a high, the Cornish public reconnected with their local seafood”.
