The Plymouth City Marine Festival
Plymouth restaurants in sustainability first
Plymouth’s hope of being the UK’s most sustainable city for fish consumption has come a step closer with the rating of more than 50 of its restaurants by Fish2fork.
The ratings judge restaurants purely on how sustainable their seafood supplies are and it is the first time such a rigorous exercise has been carried out for a city in the UK.
The results show that while there are plenty of improvements that can be made, the city has made solid and often commendable attempts to use seafood without damaging the future fruitfulness of fisheries.
Moreover, the information gathered over the last six months provides and invaluable database by which improvements to menus in the future can be measured.
Fish2fork rated the restaurants in time for the Seafood Festival, part of Plymouth’s Marine Festival, on September 15 and 16, at the invitation of city’s National Aquarium and Plymouth University’s Marine Institute.
