This week is National Seafood Week, an annual campaign celebrating the wide variety of fish and shellfish available in the UK. Organised by Seafish, a Non-Departmental Public Body set up to support the £10 billion UK seafood industry, the campaign has been running since 2015 and focuses on encouraging people to consume more seafood more often and promoting seafood as a healthy, sustainable food source.
We currently stock a variety of seafood from fresh smoked mackerel to frozen salmon fillets. Our fresh fish is sourced from Jacksons Fishmongers. Based in Newton Abbot and passionate about sustainable fishing, Jacksons purchase the freshest fish from vessels coming in to nearby Brixham and prepare and smoke their fish on site. We stock their smoked mackerel, peppered mackerel and smoked kippers which are available in fresh 150g retail packs. We also stock their fresh smoked trout which is available in 100g retail packs. All fish is naturally rich in essential nutrients and oily fish such as mackerel even more so making it a healthy food source. Why not try it in a light, creamy pate with sourdough toast or try an Asian style noodle dish with teriyaki and lemon?
Our frozen fish range is sourced from M&J Seafood and includes cod, haddock, smoked haddock and salmon fillets which are all available in 150-200g retail packs. M&J Seafood was founded in 1978 and today they continue to work to purchase the freshest fish and shellfish available from sustainable sources. Their ethos is based on no-nonsense, honest fishmongery from expert, award-winning fishmongers. This Seafood Week enjoy an old fashioned fish supper using our cod or haddock fillets or make some fragrant salmon fishcakes with lemon and dill.

We are lucky to live in a country rich with seafood from River Exe mussels to shoals of mackerel to Scottish salmon. Seafood Week can encourage us to try something new or revert to a comforting favourite; however you choose to celebrate we hope you enjoy Seafood Week.
