Cornwall Good Seafood Guide does Ben and Chris during Covid-19.

 

The recent COVID lockdown caused huge disruptions to the whole fishing industry supply chain. Through the closure of restaurants, markets and exports overnight many were forced to adapt quickly or tie-up.

This film gives you the chance to meet some of the Cornish fisherman and women that have sustainability at the heart of their fishing and hear their stories of how COVID pandemic affected their trade.

The small-scale industry has seen huge support from the local Cornish public, in which they have been able to reconnect with their local seafood. We love to see this shorter supply chain and hope to see this to be our ’new normal’, so we urge you to continue to support your local fisherman, fishmonger and merchant! 🎣

Special thanks to @carrick_roads for this brilliant production and all the members of the Cornish industry that told us their stories - @benlowecrabbing, @porthilly_shellfish, @amityseafood, @theoysterlady and Barry Preston! 🐟 🦀
