Does your local chippy deserve to be rewarded for selling seafood from sustainable sources?
Sea Champions in Exeter have been encouraging their local chip shops to take part in the "Good Catch Awards" and you can too!
If you know your local chippy sells Marine Stewardship Certified seafood, or sells fish from the Marine Conservation Society “fish to eat list”, or take other steps to make sure the seafood they sell is sustainable they could be in with a chance of winning this prestigious award!
Good Catch - The Sustainable Seafood Award 2015 recognises chippies who work hard to source their seafood from fisheries and farms that are responsibly managed. This ensures future generations can enjoy one of the UK’s best dishes. The Good Catch Award is co-sponsored and co-judged by the Marine Conservation Society and the Marine Stewardship Council and is a staple category in the National Fish & Chip Awards run by Seafish.
Entries need to be received by July 31st 2014, and the chippy owner needs to register his or her business for it.
You can take this letter to the shop owner - or you could simply tell them to register at http://www.fishandchipawards.com/why-enter-the-awards/
