These Silver Darlings are nutritional gold!

The Courier and the Press & Journal recently carried a major feature on sustainably caught North Sea herring, along with some recipes to illustrate the versatility of herring in the kitchen.

First certified in 2008, North Sea herring  is one of the longest running certified fisheries in the UK. Such recognition is testament to the hard work of Scottish herring fishers in putting sustainability at the heart of their operations.

This commitment is exhibited in many ways, including Scottish herring (and mackerel) fishers engaging in pioneering science initiatives to sample and assess stocks to provide data and information that aids sensible and pragmatic fisheries management. For environmentally conscious consumers, this is great news, for it means they can eat North Sea herring in confidence, safe in the knowledge that the fishery is sustainably harvested.
