Who we are

Seafish is a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) set up by the Fisheries Act 1981 to improve efficiency and raise standards across the seafood industry.

What we do

When Seafish was established in 1981, the Fisheries Act defined its role as 'promoting the efficiency of the seafood industry … so as to serve the interests of that industry as a whole' whilst at the same time giving 'regard to the interests of consumers of sea fish and sea fish products'.


In this section we will display any invitation to tender that Seafish has issued.

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.
