Why Cornish fish is more healthy

Here at The Cornish Fishmonger, we recognise the many health benefits of fresh Cornish fish, and would recommend eating three portions a week – one oily, one flatfish and one white. Fresh fish is well-known for being rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and essential nutrients, while acting as a high protein but low-fat alternative to red and processed meat. To name a few, the health benefits of eating fish include helping to reduce high blood pressure,  lessening the risk of depression, helping to keep a healthy heart, and aiding concentration skills in the young and old alike.

So why is Cornish fish so special? In Cornwall, our clean and unpolluted waters contribute to the fine quality and taste of our fish, which is one of the reasons they are exported all over the world. As well as this, ethical fishing practices and day-boat fishing means that our fish stocks replenish easily and are not effected by over fishing.

By ordering fresh fish from us, you know that your seafood has been sustainably caught from the clean Cornish waters, quality tested by experts, and then quickly delivered from quayside to your door – preserving the quality and nutrients of your fish to make it the best it can possibly be. You really will taste and feel the difference when you eat our freshly caught Cornish fish!
