21.10.11 - Gone fishing

Well not quite, because we couldn’t get the insurance.

But our eager group of chefs and team leaders did make it down to Brighton and Newhaven Fish Sales in Hove.

They’re the people who deliver our fish to us fresh every day. First they have to catch them, which they do around three miles off the south coast. They use tiny day boats with small nets (but even the larger ones do no damage to the sea bed) to land their quota.

Any extra caught are sold to others, so no dead fish are ever, ever thrown back. Then a magic pinball conveyor sorts the catch according to weight.

We got a fileting masterclass, shivered in cavernous freezers and discovered that male cuttlefish are lured into pots with the promise of a female. Raunchy eh? See the photos of the Canteen fishing trip here.
