Rediscover local seafood...#buyfresh



Limited edition, Provenance tag - continuing the story.


We wanted seafood lovers to continue the story. At SWFish we can tell the story from the moment the fish is caught right up until the customer receives it. How the customer prepares it and eats it, is usually unchartered territory to us. So by using the new provenance tag and a smart phone, we want people to express there love for locally caught sustainable fresh fish. Tweet using #SWFish and your tweet and photos will be displayed here! How will you eat yours?

Don't forget the Provenance tag is a usable piece of fishing tackle, so the Story doesn't stop there, get catching and show us what you caught!




The Sustainable Market Stall

We wanted to show people how easy it is to buy local and help support their local fishermen. We set up the sustainable market stall at Crocadon Sawmill in St Mellion. We sourced crab from Phil Trebilcock (loyal partner) in Newquay, cooked it, picked it and prepared it. Made up several limited edition dressed crab, sandwiches and wraps. My Mum even cooked several crab quiche's using a traditional family recipe.

Our passionate volunteer team arrived with the authentic pop-up stall, and spent the day promoting local seafood, encouraging the less adventurous to try something different! All the proceeds we made were donated to the Fishermen's Mission in Newlyn. An extremely worthwhile charity who step in when fishing families need support.

We absolutely loved it and are looking forward to being back at Crocadon next month

SWFish Registered CIC

The southwest fishing industry is a major driver to our local economy. Not just in the fishing industry itself but in complementary services and industries. A prosperous, sustainable fishing industry will lead to long term employment opportunities for both local people and graduates from regional Universities.

Our fishermen across Cornwall and Devon are extremely responsible, and environmentally concise. They are hard workers and take the brunt of any financial set backs due to.. Quota complications, poor catch, bad weather, poor fish prices and changing consumer habits.. Fishermen go to extraordinary lengths to ensure we get the finest, freshest seafood on our dinner plates.

They care about the sea and how it is farmed because its their livelihoods! What we would like to see is a more sustainable industry, supported by the wider community, where fish is sourced responsibly, more money retained into our local economy, leading to more quota, more fishing licenses and a prosperous industry. Where fishermen have more control over the decisions that directly affect their businesses.

Through swFish we wanted to bring together a unique blend of skills, expert knowledge and passion. Grounded by creativity, new ideas and alternative business thinking, using modern Technology. We aim to add value to the industries own initiatives and ensure sustainable growth and good prices into the future.
