Fathom: getting below the surface of the UK fishing industry.
Fathom 6: Rapid response
Mar 20, 2020
In response to Covid-19 and its immediate impact on the fishing industry, Paul and Chris discuss the following topics:
- The current state of the market in the south west
- The emergency #FishtoYourDoor initiative set up by Seafood Cornwall to provide a matchmaking service to customers in isolation who want fresh fish delivered to their door with fish merchants and fishmongers who can provide a delivery service. The customer gets Cornish fish on demand, and supports local fishermen - everyone wins! Email [email protected] if you are interested.
- Buying and selling of first sale fish. Want to know how to do it? Check the poster on how you can sell direct the right way!
- Support for fishermen who are struggling financially and with their mental health
