Eat ugly fish scheme launched in Sussex
6:30pm Wednesday 20th March 2013 in News
The UK’s first ever community seafood scheme is to be launched on March 27.
Catchbox, which promises to introduce local people to ugly fish, is to run in Brighton and Hove and Chichester.
The aim of the scheme is to protect both the local seas and fishermen’s livelihoods while ensuring that there is no shortage of delicious local seafood.
Members join up and pay at the beginning of the fishing season for a share of the weekly catch.
They then receive a set weight of fish each week similar to a vegetable box scheme.
This will include the not so well known of “ugly” fish along with recipe cards for tasty meals.
Celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has thrown his support behind the scheme, describing it as “bringing communities together around a topic close to my heart – delicious, local and responsibly-sourced seafood.”
