According to Reuters New Agency the British Pound has fallen to a 31-year low on fears about the effect of the June 23 vote to leave the European Union. This will have a knock on effect on price for fish .
That may make imports pricier, including the cod and haddock used by roughly 10,500 fish and chip shops in the 380 million meals they serve up each year.
However, with the UK fishing industry being free of the crazy restrictions, such as the ‘catch and dump’ policy. Also, hopefully, we will have more control over our waters.
The only recourse to this problem is to support your local Fish and Chip Shop as much as you can. When it comes to buying fish for home consumption is to buy, if you are lucky enough to have one, from a local fishmonger .
The large supermarkets have said their prices wont be gong up for quite a while as they have committed to purchase quantities on a negotiated price. So if the purse strings are tight (aren’t everyone’s?!) Then get your fish from them. I would check on where it was caught as food-miles should be taken account of!!
