Buying and cooking seafood

There are thousands of different species of fish and shellfish inhabiting the world's oceans and rivers, so it's no surprise that buying and cooking seafood can be overwhelming.

At Seafish we take a lead roll in the promotion of Seafood highlighting Seafood’s many benefits to increase UK consumption levels 

Here, we’ve pulled together a short guide for consumers to help make buying and cooking a little easier.

Buying Seafood

Finding seafood which is both fresh and responsibly sourced isn't always easy, and many of the industry's labelling schemes can be confusing to consumers.

At Seafish, we know it's crucial to allow customers to make simple informed decisions about the seafood they buy, that’s why we’ve produced advice and information to help consumers:

  • Understand the labels on seafood packaging
  • Buy sustainable seafood
  • Recognise the freshest fish

We’ve also compiled all of the most important information about buying, cooking, and eating seafood into one handy guide.

Cooking seafood 

Whether you prefer to grill, fry, or poach your fish; preparing seafood is delightfully simple.

Cooking fish is fast and easy, making seafood the perfect choice for a quick and healthy midweek supper or an express lunch.

Here we’ve collated consumer advice on preparing and cooking fish, along with some of our most popular seafood recipes, some of which feature in this handy guide.
