Frequently asked questions

  • 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.

  • We’ve become a little bit set in our ways over the years with our ‘go-to’ fish choices; cod, haddock, tuna, salmon and warm-water prawns, but this has really jeopardised their sustainability. There are many alternative species available for us to try that have been farmed or caught responsibly, hake, corley, rainbow trout, mackerel and rope grown mussels are all great choices of sustainable fish in the UK.

  • 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.
