Seafood Week

Seafood Week is an annual campaign aimed at getting more people to eat more fish more often. Seafish runs the eight-day celebration every October and highlights the variety and quality of fish and shellfish on offer in the UK. The campaign is co-ordinated by Seafish as a flexible platform for businesses and organisations from across the industry and throughout the supply chain to get involved.

New partnerships with major brands will join with existing supporters to make Seafood Week 2016 the biggest and best it has been to date. Businesses across the whole supply chain will be tempting consumers with great ways to buy, cook and dine out on great seafood choices, while also championing the nation - through their own marketing channels - to eat more seafood, more often. Seafood Week will once again start with the popular social media campaign #fishpunday which will encourage the public to take part online, and give businesses the opportunity for their brands to be more visible to potential customers. A different species will be celebrated on each day of Seafood Week, with alternatives also promoted to ensure that consumers are made aware of the great choice and quality available in the UK.
