Cornwall Wildlife Trust recently created an award winning guide (the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide) in an effort to educate the public and businesses about sustainable sourcing of seafood.

They are now offering exclusive ‘Seafood Sustainability Masterclasses’, which have been trialled on over 70 staff from Bedruthan Hotel and Spa and the Scarlet Hotel, and with 30 St Austell Brewery Chefs.

Cornwall Wildlife Trust explains:

“Cornwall Good Seafood Guide is an award winning project of Cornwall Wildlife Trust which helps us all make good seafood choices, it encourages us to eat more local and sustainable seafood and to think more carefully when buying seafood. The project was initially set up using a grant from the European Fisheries Fund and the Marine Management Organisation facilitated by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Fisheries Local Action Group. A cutting-edge, user-friendly website was created, by Falmouth web design company Dewsign, which provides information on over sixty seafood species and thirteen fishing and aquaculture methods that are in use today. It makes recommendations on sustainable options and a logo has been created that can be used by supporters of Cornwall Good Seafood Guide to highlight sustainable seafood on menus, packaging, websites and fishmongers counters.”
