'Come and meet us' customer open day

For the first time, we opened our doors at the fish palace to welcome some of our local customers to have a look around. We brought in some fresh Cornish fish for a filleting and preparation demo hosted by our filleter Gracjan. We ran a tasting session comparing smoked salmons, tuna and sashimi. We closed the day off with Alistair telling the story of how The Fish Society came to be and answered a range of questions on sustainability and what's next for The Fish Society.

Let the tasting begin. Each guest was given a tasting sheet to grade the fish. We compared smoked salmons, tunas and sashimis.
