Sole of Discretion is a collection of small-scale fishers in Plymouth harbour, just a short drive from our farm. They provide premium quality, ethical and sustainable fish with the environment in mind at all times. You will also find the name of who caught your fish and the boat they were on on the packaging too, which we think is rather lovely.
We chose Tony at Popsie Fish as they are one of the few fishers catching salmon using a static net or line – only 11% of Alaskan salmon is caught this way. Popsie fish off the beach so fuel consumption is zero, and by-catch is zero. Non-static gear caught in the generic fisheries uses plenty of fuel and discards other fish like Pollack. Popise is a family owned and run business, employing 12 people (including themselves) over the 3 month season. Proud of their superior product, they keep control over the production, icing in slurry immediately on catch, handling the fish by the head not the tail (which prevents bruising and breaking the spine) and getting the fish to the processing in top condition. We support them as part of the Slow Fish Network of Small Scale fishers.
