New favourite fish on net

THE Marine Conservation Society has updated its online Good Fish Guide with some exciting new additions to its green-rated best choice list.

The charity says that, as the UK prepares to leave the EU and fisheries talks get underway to try to secure a bigger share of fish stocks, now may be the time to swap the traditional UK top five favourite fish for new choices.

Bernadette Clarke programme manager for the Good Fish Guide said: “UK consumers stick to their tried and tested top five for familiarity but not always sustainability.

“Cod, tuna, salmon, haddock and prawns, from the right sources are all okay, but there’s so much more to explore and the new additions to the best choice list are a good place to start.”
