The first-ever range of tinned British-caught seafood has been launched by south coast seafood restaurant chain Rockfish.

“My favourite lockdown project is done,” said owner and chef Mitch Tonks. “Today we launch the world’s first range of tinned British-caught seafood, harvested and preserved at its very best. So far, Lyme Bay mussels, mackerel, cuttlefish and Mounts Bay sardines have made the cut, with more species and boats being added.”

Rockfish says: “We source the best fresh seafood direct from the south coast of England from our own boat the Rockfisher and others from the local fleet, to create perfectly preserved, tinned British fish with a direct chain from sea to plate. You can have this posted to you, or gifted and sent to surprise any foodie friends, anywhere in mainland UK.

“It is deliciously preserved, and each tin is artfully packaged with bold, colourful designs created by Penny Tonks. Tinned fish is economical and more versatile than even fresh fish and ensures that 100% of the catch is eaten, with no waste. This increased value for the fishermen, and less pressure to catch more, allows the fishery to flourish for another day.”
