Our next CLG meeting explores promoting locally-sourced seafood and how the industry is championing fish and shellfish from UK waters.

Seafish’s Love Seafood initiative aims to inspire consumers to enjoy a more balanced lifestyle by eating more seafood. This has been coupled with a recent national media campaign featuring fish and shellfish from UK waters. We have seen positive lockdown awareness around the importance of nutrition, the growth in consumer confidence around cooking and preparing meals, and the increased popularity of fish box schemes.

As we embrace ‘staycations’ this could be the ideal opportunity to promote locally-sourced seafood, both in and out of the home. This Common Language Group (CLG) bite-size meeting will explore how the industry is championing fish and shellfish from UK waters; how fish lists can help consumers make the right sourcing choices; and how the seafood supply chain is supporting fishery management improvements on the water

Seafood Issues Groups

The CLG is one of a number of Seafish-facilitated discussion forums which focus on the integrity of the seafood supply chain. These groups provide a discussion platform for some of the most important issues facing the seafood industry, particularly in relation to the responsible sourcing of seafood. They are an opportunity for all those involved in the seafood supply chain to reach a consensus on common issues
