Pisces Responsible Fish Restaurants is a restaurant-led initiative that, since 2004, has sought out and linked good fishermen with chefs. While much has been said about sustainable fisheries, practical issues still make it difficult for chefs to get better fish onto plates. So, in 2012, we also started directly sourcing fish from specific boats to (currently) London restaurants.


Pisces was and is co-ordinated by a professional ecologist and a London-based Japanese restauranteur, and from the start it has focused on individual coastal day boats that we have ourselves surveyed and which have minimal discards, whose other environmental impacts are relatively low, and who can deliver their fish to restaurants on the same day as capture or next morning. The fish have to be of exceptional, sashimi grade, quality. We insist on photographing and (now) videoing at sea, and putting the results up here for everyone to see for themselves.


If you’re a chef in a hurry, click ‘In a nutshell’, while ‘Objectives’ sets out four steps we take to put ideas into practice. If you’re a restaurant or fisher who wants to join then ‘Contact Us’. Click ‘Restaurants’ to discover where to go to eat the results. Or just browse ‘Fish and Fisheries’ or the ‘Photos’ gallery to read about and see videos and photos onboard the small coastal day-boats we’ve worked with, fishing the length and breadth of the UK
