First fish supplier given SRA approval

Wild Harbour Fish Company]( is the first fish supplier to be awarded the coveted [Sustainable Restaurant Association]( (SRA) seal of approval.

Wild Harbour is a Cornish-based fish supplier that offers 100% sustainable fresh wild mackerel, pollack, sea bass, cod, razor clam and lobster direct to restaurants, hotels and gastropubs. All its fish is wild and traceable back to the individual fisherman and each fresh fish is caught by hand off the West Cornish coast by local "in-shore boats" using either rod and line or hand lines.

Wild Harbour, a family-owned business, is passionate about what it does. Saul Astrinsky, fisherman and joint owner of Wild Harbour, said: "We have been fishing sustainably for over 25 years and are now in a position where we can offer our fish directly to those customers who, like me, are concerned about the state of our oceans and fish stocks and want to make a truly sustainable choice."

Mark Linehan, managing director of the SRA, added: "The SRA Supplier Approval Scheme provides a key reference point for restaurants, bringing them together with suppliers. Sourcing sustainable fish from reliable suppliers can be a challenge so we are delighted to approve Wild Harbour Fish Company - the first fish supplier to be approved by the SRA."
