A nation in need of something fishy!

Did you know that we eat TEN times less seafood than the Japanese? and if you wanted to eat at a seafood restaurant, only 2.5% of London restaurants are Seafood focused?

In a study last year it showed that the average Brit eats LESS than 6 Kilograms of fish per year, compare this to  40/60 Kilograms in Japan and you can see we are not eating as healthily as our counterpart island nations . This of course does raise a huge question….. why do we seem to have such a low intake? when our most abundant resource  is 12,429 km of coastline?

Perhaps we should look for inspiration from our very own seafood champion


Rick Stein has been recognised as a leader in the fish restaurant scene since the 80’s. He has successfully produced over 25 books and has an awards list as long as his arm. As a real champion of fish and seafood at its best and in season, Rick shows people how to get the most out of some of our own native species including the big five; Cod, Haddock, Tuna, Salmon and Prawns.

Some of the awards he has achieved over the years include numerous ‘best restaurant of the year’ accolades, TV Chef of the year and in 2003 the huge honor of an OBE for contributions to west country tourism.
