FAQs

  • Sustainable fishing is important in the management of our marine ecosystems, in order to respect fish stock levels and ensure overfishing does not occur. With fish being one of the most popular choices of animal proteins at mealtimes, its no wonder that popular fish species such as cod are in decline. Overfishing to meet the demands of the consumer have meant certain stocks of fish have gone into decline, the demand has been so high that the fish stocks have not be given time to replenish. It is said that 1/3rd of fish stocks are overfished, which really is quite shocking. Sustainable fishing allows fisheries to work closely with scientists to look at the patterns of growth and decline of fish stocks, these occur through births, deaths and migration. By analysing this data, the ‘maximum sustainable yield’ (this is how much a fish species can be fished before overfishing occurs) is calculated and this allows responsible fishing to occur, working with nature, instead of against it.

  • There is a wide spectrum of ways that fish can be caught or farmed, certification schemes help you identify which standards the fish you are buying has been subject too. At Coombe Farm Organic we stock sustainable fish – all either organically certified or approved by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is an independent non-profit organization which sets a standard for sustainable fishing, look out for their blue label on fish products which reassures you it was caught by a responsible fishery in a sustainable way, ensuring healthy oceans and safeguards seafood supplies for the future.

  • Just like organic meat, you can get organic fish. Organic fish grows in conditions as close to nature intended as possible state, with production of organic fish being carried out in uncontaminated water of high quality, where the fish do not eat artificial feed and have room to roam. We are proud to work with one of the UK’s only organically certified salmon producers, JCS fish. You can find their organic salmon on our website, delivered frozen so you can enjoy it all year round should you wish.

  • Wild caught fish is not organic as there is no way to control fish movement, diet or exposure to contaminants.
