BTA work closely with a number of organisations in the NGO community, and for a number of years we have had a close working relationship with the Marine Conservation Society (MCS).
We are delighted therefore that MCS have chose to promote our species as their “fish of the month” for April! Why not take a look at the MCS website to see the delicious recipe that they have provided for us all to try – trout with hazelnuts and sage. This recipe has been developed by C J Jackson of the Billingsgate Seafood School, another friend to the Association.
We are proud that MCS are keen to acknowledge the importance of farmed fish in the sustainability agenda. Many do not understand all of the issues that surround fish farming – or operate with only a hazy knowledge of a farming system that changed so long ago it would be unrecognisable to the modern fish farmer – and we are only too happy to work with groups like MCS that are keen to promote sustainable fish farming.
MCS carefully consider issues such as feed sustainability, husbandry systems and environmental impacts in their fish assessments – and so we are keen to let everyone know of this endorsement they have provided us through selecting trout to be their (farmed) fish of the month.
Once again it just goes to show that trout equates to guilt free eating and a product you can have every confidence in!
