Here at the Brighton & Hove Food Partnership, we've embarked on a sustainable fish campaign, exploring whether Brighton & Hove could become a 'Sustainable Fish City'. As a coastal town with a long fishing history, we would like to see more consumers, caterers and food businesses taking notice of our local fishing industry and taking steps to make more sustainable choices.
The issue of sustainable fish is a complex one and raises a lot of questions: Should I eat certain species or not? How many portions of fish should I eat a week? Where can I buy local fish? The answers to some of these questions can be found on our 'fishy issues' page.
We must act now to secure the future of the fish in our seas. Our power as consumers can help us turn the tide. Find out what you can do by signing our pledge.
On 1st May, 7pm we're screeing The End of The Line at The Basement on Kensington Street, Brighton. It's a film about global overfishing. Join us for a drink, some food and a discussion about what's going on locally to 'save our seas'. Register for a free ticket now.
