FishWorks parts company with Mitch Tonks

Embattled fish restaurant chain FishWorks today announced that Mitch Tonks, its founder and former chief executive, will step down as director with immediate effect.

Tonks, who had already reliquished the role of chief executive to Paul Goodale, previously chief operating officer, will remain in an "ambassadorial role" and focus on independent projects and his media career.

Gary Ashworth, chairman at FishWorks, said: "Mitch's passion, vision and knowledge of the fish industry is second to none. I am delighted with the way Paul Goodale has developed Mitch's original vision for FishWorks since taking over as chief executive in November 2007. We wish Mitch the best of luck with his future projects."

The company, which made pre-tax losses of £2.6m for the six months to January 31, also confirmed it was continuing with its strategy to pulling out of "underperforming, non-core sites".

FishWorks said it had successfully disposed of its Notting Hill site and remained in talks to pull out of more.
