Keep up with the latest news and opinion from Seafish, the authority on seafood.


The following are a range of seafood industry-related publications produced by the Marketing and Communications team at Seafish.

News and events

The global seafood industry is dynamic. News stories reveal advances in the industry every week, and events take place across the world all year round.


The most recent survey data reveals that fewer than one in three Britons consumes the recommended two or more portions of seafood a week, and that just over half (52%) of our population is aware of the government’s recommendation to consume seafood at least twice a week for optimum health.
