The UK Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition has recommended that all adults should eat at least two portions a week, at least, one of which should be oil-rich seafood. This is endorsed by experts at the Food Standards Agency, the British Heart Foundation and the British Nutrition Foundation.

Seafood is more than tasty… it’s also great for your health, your body and your mind. The minerals and vitamins in seafood promote clearer skin, shinier hair, higher energy levels. It can even boost your brainpower. And with more than 100 species available around the British Isles, there are lots of species to choose from.

Did you know, fish and chips contains 36 percent fewer calories than a chicken korma and pilau rice, and 42 percent less fat than a doner kebab with pita and salad.
