FalFish - from Sea to Plate

Sustainability

We are committed to sustainability and social responsibility to secure healthy fish stocks for all to enjoy for generations to come.  We believe actions speak louder than words and underpin this commitment with meaningful actions throughout the whole operation.  Whether it be working with fishermen and scientists on a range of sustainability initiatives (see below), meeting ambitious re-cycling targets, reducing factory discharge or engaging  in educational outreach to local schools and colleges.
