Sourcing - With 21,000 species of fish and shellfish in the world and around 100 delicious varieties available in the UK, there really is an ocean of choice.
This means that more and more people are becoming adventurous in their tastes. You can respond to this demand by providing your customers with some of the more unusual species such as ling and pollock, as well as traditional species like cod and haddock. Many of the species available in the UK come from a wide variety of sources, with 70% being imported from all over the world.


There is a great deal of information on the seafood industry available in the two Study Guides - Marine finfish product knowledge and Shellfish and non marine finfish product knowledge. These two study guides can be found in the Learning Resources section.
