Loch Fyne Tops Sustainable Seafood Tables
New web site praises Loch Fyne's ethical approach
October 22, 2009, Press Dispensary. Loch Fyne Restaurants appear in top slot in a brand new web site dedicated to informing the public about restaurants and their approach to sustainable seafood.
Whilst Loch Fyne tops the 'best' tables on www.fish2fork.com, there are many well known restaurants that are named and shamed for their poor approach to sustainable seafood – two very high profile celebrity chefs and their London restaurants both being criticised for serving endangered species.
The web site is the brainchild of environmental journalist Charles Clover whose ground-breaking film THE END OF THE LINE and its exposé of the trade in near-extinct bluefin tuna caused a stir when it was screened earlier this year.
The site says: "The Loch Fyne chain scores highly because of exemplary fish choices: Icelandic cod, haddock from the North Sea, creel-caught langoustines and dived king scallops."
Richard Morris, Director of Loch Fyne Restaurants said: "We started over 10 years ago with a firm, ethical approach to sourcing our produce. We remain absolutely committed to serving only sustainable seafood and to supporting responsible fishing methods."
Loch Fyne Restaurant is open daily from breakfast/lunch through to dinner serving fresh fish and shellfish, meat and vegetarian dishes. Diners can now enjoy the 2-course set lunch for just £10 from noon-7pm daily.
A Loch Fyne spokesperson is available for interviews. Please call Kathryn Coury on 07973 306925.
