How important is sustainable fishing in your view point?

"Very important, it looks after stocks and increases prices. There are some weeks in winter when hooks won’t fish and I use nets that are only left in the water a short time to keep the quality up. It is all about offering the freshest fish possible to the public"


Why should UK consumers eat your fish?

"Unbeatable quality! Straight from the hook into slush ice and looked after for the quick journey to the buyer. UK consumers can’t get better anywhere else
