Seafish Stage Sponsors

Your compère is Richard ‘Gus’ Caslake

Richard ‘Gus’ Caslake, Regional Advisor for Seafish, a festival regular, will be guiding us through each demo, and welcoming back our much loved festival stalwarts as they share their passion for responsibly sourced seafood and how easy it is to buy, prepare and eat it.    

 

At Seafish, our mission is to support a profitable, sustainable and socially responsible future for the seafood industry, from sea to plate.

We’re on a big mission to get more people, eating more fish, more often!  Our ‘Fish 2 a week’ campaign focuses on the health benefits of eating two portions of seafood a week (one of which should be oily fish like mackerel, herring or sardines).  We’re going to be showcasing how easy it is to do this through our fun on stand seafood cookery demos and encouraging everyone to help spread the word about the healthy goodness found in seafood!   #my2aweek

Responsibly sourced and regional seafood supplied by Weyfish with a day catch supplied by Reserve Seafood.

 

The Nyetimber Dorset Seafood Festival raises funds for the Fishermen's Mission - the vital port of call for fishermen and their families.
