Alternative Fish Species

Many of us in the UK are too reliant on the ‘BIG 5’; Cod, Haddock, Tuna, Salmon and Warm Water Prawns. One of the easiest ways to choose more sustainable seafood is to try alternative species that have been caught sustainably and in-season.

Sustainability & Local Fish Species

We feel it is our duty to educate and inform our customers about the variety of fish and shellfish available on their doorstep. We have been instrumental in championing relatively unknown species, such as the Cornish Megrim Sole, as a viable alternative to other species which are threatened with overfishing. Not only does this serve to increase interest in Cornish fish, but also is in keeping with our ethos.

The Best Sustainable Seafood Choices

We’ve chosen some of the most popular fish and shellfish species that are sustainably available at Wild Harbour. It’s not about avoiding fish; it’s about knowing what’s available locally & sustainable.
