Girlyfishmongers and the power of social media.

Good afternoon buoys and gulls 😊. Even whilst I’m on my holiday, I can still find something to blog about. The above collage contains photos from this week and also from 2 Fish Craft Championships. Monday 9th myself and my friend Nicola took a girly fishmonger road trip to Horwich to finally meet a fellow…

December madness and beyond..

  Good evening everyone. Well, what a crazy month December was! I had intended on writing a blog round about the middle of December, doing a little update with customers and the beautiful fish we had in. The above fish in my photo had a lot to do with the reason why I didn’t. Easter…

My 2 Year Fishmonger Anniversary

Hello everyone. Thank you again for taking the time to read my fish ramblings. Today’s is (for me anyway) very important. Today, 1st December, marks the 2nd year of me being signed off as a gold merit trained fishmonger, and, if I’m being honest, the 1st year I’ve thought and appreciated what it is I…

Girly Fishmongers

Good Evening everyone. It’s a late blog tonight, partly due to the fact that I was on the closing down the fish counter shift and also due to the fact that I couldn’t find the above photo in my 100’s of files! The photo included in my blog was taken at last years Fish Craft…

The Real Price Of Fish

I have just returned home from a wonderful time away in Grimsby/Cleethorpes. It might not be the number one choice for anyone to go and spend 2 days in an area which is synomous with fish, especially for a fishmonger who is on her last holiday before the Christmas season, but you have read my…

Do Fishmongers Deserve A Recognised Qualification?

Thank you to those who have read my previous two blogs on this subject. This is my final blog (for the moment) to discuss this subject. My intention with the blog is to really highlight the work that the Seafish industry and other bodies are doing to try and get fishmongers trained, qualified and recognised….

Why It Is Important Fishmongers Are Qualified And Recognised

The following little series of blogs will hopefully answer that title question. Of course, this is just my point of view, but one I am very passionate about. As any reader of my blogs will know, I am a gold merit trained fishmonger and extremely proud of it. The amount of hard work which goes…

Children &The Love Of Fish

Good Evening everyone. After doing four sessions of Farm To Fork, a question has been floating round my mind all day. At what stage does our fascination with fish cease to be? With every group of fantastic school children I’ve taught over the past week and a half there has been a pattern. There has…

FishStock Brixham 2016

I have to say that the past 3 weeks have been almost unbelievable. From entering the British Fish Craft Championships as an independent competitor, to going back to my fish counter The Seafish Industry cup winner for 2016 and then taking part in FishStock 2016, has just been incredible. So, I went back to work…

My Love For The Sea

Good Evening all. This blog (9th September) marks the last night of being in Brixham and the eve of FishStock 2016. As I sat myself on the rocks on Breakwater beach, watching the waves against the shore I realised that I’ve never written a blog about my love of the sea! Of course I write…
