Description: SEAFISH, the authority on seafood in the UK, works across all sectors of the seafood industry to promote good quality and sustainable seafood. Our research and projects are aimed at raising standards, improving efficiency and ensuring that our industry develops in a viable way. We are the UK’s only cross-industry seafood body working with fishermen, processors, wholesalers, seafood farmers, fish friers, caterers, retailers and the import/export trade. A Non Departmental Public Body (NDPB), we are sponsored by the four UK government fisheries departments and funded by a levy on seafood. We were established in 1981. SEAFISH has a publicly stated commitment to “the sustainable and efficient harvesting of those resources on which the seafood industry depends, the protection of marine ecosystems, based on sustainable resource utilisation and best environmental practice”. SEAFISH has worked on various European projects (Necessity, Ecodredge, Degree) but most of our work is commissioned and paid for through levy funding. In recent years SEAFISH has worked closely with the UK industry to raise standards through initiatives such as the innovative Responsible Fishing Scheme and cross industry forum such as the Common language Group and the Discard Action group.
