Due to sustained global pressure on North Atlantic cod stocks we need to act now if we wish to preserve cod for our nation’s future. Icelandic fishing methods have shown us that sustainable management of cod stocks is possible, but firstly we need to ease the pressure on our cod by DIVERSIFYING our choices and enjoying a wider selection of our oceans bounty!
Over the coming months the Atlantic Fish Bar will be presenting its customers with a whole host of alternative fish to sample- many virtually unheard of to the British public, in an attempt to broaden our appetite beyond cod and haddock. Virtually all of the species selected will be landed by local south coast fishermen and purchased through small coastal markets such as Looe, Newlyn and Brixham, in an effort to provide you with the most exceptional fresh fish while aiding local fishing communities. Our goal is to offer you fish that has been caught, landed, prepared and served all within 24 hours. Freshness is the key to great fish and chips and these specials are at the pinnacle of freshness.
Already scoring well on our fish feedback leader board are Coley, Whiting, Pouting, Cornish Sole, Mussels and fresh Calamari with even more exciting species to come! Possibly the biggest success so far is Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall’s ‘Mackerel bap’ – Delicious boneless fillets of mackerel deep fried in a light batter and served in a large toasted white bap with crisp lettuce and lashings of tartar sauce (or even better sour cream and horseradish sauce!!). Ideal for a healthy and tasty lunchtime snack and super sustainable!
