Fishmongers and Fish Restaurants

Anyone who likes to eat or enjoys cooking should care about the quality of the ingredients they buy and about where those ingredients come from. There are frequent campaigns, often spearheaded by celebrity chefs, challenging the companies and people who grow, cultivate, and farm our raw ingredients, to change the way they do things. One of the most recent, and most strikingly obvious for most people is fishing. More specifially, overfishing. The images of trawler obliterating the sea bed in search of fish and shellfish is bad enough, but when you read how much is thrown back because of European legislation, it's enough to make you cry.

Of course we can voice our opinion in an attempt to get this changed, but the real way we can bring about change is to vote with our money. Educate yourself about sustainable fish and seafood and demand it from the people on this page. They care as much as you do. From the fishmongers all the way back to the fishermen. They know that irresponsible fishing is bad for their way of life, so stop asking for endangered species. Start buying less trendy white fish, which tastes every bit as good and is often cheaper anyway.
