The beauty of seafood is that you could eat a portion of it every day for a month without eating the same thing twice.
There are more than 100 different types of seafood available around the coast of the UK and many more species are imported. With so many different species to choose from, you'll never get bored!
The Seafish recipe bank is packed with ideas for delicious, nutritious seafood meals. Most seafood ingredients can be substituted with other species, just ask your fishmonger what is available.
PAUL Trebilcock, of the National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations, has spoken of the threat the industry faces from 'the whim of politicians, media distortions, the swivel-eyed end of the environmental movement and the bureaucracy in Brussels'.
He made the comments in his report to the NFFO's AGM in London on 7 May, as his final duty as chairman before being elected as NFFO president.
Trebilcock's report covered topics including Trends in Fishing Mortality, Common Fisheries Policy, fleet diversity, the Scottish independence referendum, lifejackets, logbooks, shellfish and the under 10-metre fleet.
The report can be read in full here.

Fisheries Minister George Eustice recently said that the UK is: “committed to further extension of catch quota schemes as part of transition to CFP reform”. These schemes, involving the UK fishing industry and the Marine Management Organisation (MMO), are showing that there is a viable alternative to discards, ensuring a sustainable future for both our fish stocks and our fishing fleet.
DEFRA is holding a series of workshops around England to raise awareness of public consultations concerning the implementation of reforms – such as the discard ban – which are due to be part of the new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and to discuss the proposals with the industry.
Seafish would like to invite industry to attend these events, which are taking place in Hastings, Mevagissey, Grimsby, Newlyn and Brixham between April 30 and May 8.
