Seafish was founded in 1981 by an Act of Parliament and is the public body that supports all sectors of the £10bn UK seafood industry for a profitable, sustainable and socially responsible future. It is the only pan-industry body offering services to all parts of the seafood industry, including catching and aquaculture, processors, importers, exporters, and distributors of seafood, and restaurants and retailers.
Seafish is funded by a levy on the first sale of seafood landed and imported in the UK. It aims to support and improve the environmental sustainability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the industry, as well as promoting sustainably-sourced seafood.
Its vision is of a thriving seafood industry and its mission is ‘Seafood is the way forward.’
