The Tag

With the bad press Sea Bass has been receiving the SWHFA decided to highlight the ethical, and sustainable alternative to farmed or pair-trawl caught bass by introducing individual tags for each fish caught using hook and line.

lt-tagThe SWHFA numbered tags are inserted in the gills or mouth by the fishermen and should remain in the fish until taken out by the end-user.

As well as environmental reasons for choosing line-caught bass; for example the wild caught bass have more muscle and are less flabby than farmed bass as they have a 100% natural diet.

To reduce costs we are keen to re-use the tags. If you would like to help us re-cycle the tags then please send them to: Seafood Cornwall Training, 50 the Strand, Newlyn, Cornwall TR18 5HW
