This Topic Page is a guide to qualifications for Fishmongers, supermarket, high street and mobile fishmongers.


Background

General qualifications for people working in fishmongering will include food safety and health and safety, either as internally developed and awarded qualifications or third-party accredited and recognised qualifications.

Seafish have developed a range of accredited qualifications that can be delivered by Seafish approved trainers. Some Seafish approved trainers are based within individual businesses (including recruitment agencies) and other train staff for that business, while others are independent trainers able to support all businesses within a region.

In addition to third-party qualifications, Seafish accredits and offers a range of fish and shellfish specific qualifications to match the courses delivered by our partners and approved trainer network.

Vocational qualifications and apprenticeships represent the gold standard for qualifications for operatives, supervisors and managers in fishmongering being enthusiastic adopters. Both level 2 and level 3 qualifications in fish and shellfish industry skills are generally available throughout the UK, along with the associated intermediate and advanced apprenticeships. The fish and shellfish frameworks are so comprehensive and flexible that they are ideally suited to fishmongers, perhaps more so than any other sector of the fish industry.
