The last great wild food resource.

If we are to manage the seas sustainably, fish must be caught responsibly.

Where possible we buy fish which has been certified sustainable.

We like to know when and where all our fish are caught.

Traceability is vital if we are to control the quality and quantity of the catch





The flesh of plaice is white, tender and subtle-flavoured.

It's a right-eyed, oval-shaped flatfish with characteristic redy orange spots and a pearly white underside. Its orange spots are an indication of freshness; brighter spots mean a fresher fish. North Sea plaice reach between 35 and 45cm in their 6th year.

Its habitat ranges from the shoreline down to the continental shelf.
