Description

Where we can find more sustainable, low impact fishing than in local fisheries, Sole of Discretion sources from abroad. Wild salmon from Alaska is one of the world’s best examples of a sustainably managed fishery, and we have teamed up with a small-scale fishing family to import their salmon. Tony came to visit us in the UK earlier this year and was keen to know where his salmon would be sold, and what our customers are looking for.

Produced in:

Alaska, smoked in Newton Abbott


Sole of Discretion says

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.

This product has been smoked at Jackson's Smokery, Newton Abbot.

We provide the ability for the fishers to land, process and sell their own fish, offering full traceability through the supply chain - a first in the UK. By working only with small-scale boats of under 10ms in length, there is significantly less damage to the marine environment than from the large trawlers. The fishers are paid a fair price, agreed in advance - thereby creating a market mechanism for rewarding those fishers doing the least damage to the environment. Our fishers land late in an evening, or early in the morning, we pack and process during the day usually into 300gm fillet packs, and put the fish on the Intercity train to Farmdrop customers in London for same-day delivery. It’s hard to beat that freshness, and because we use only static nets or hand liners, the quality is unbeatable. We trace back to each boat, and all our retail packs state the name of the fisher and method of catch. We also blast freeze our fish - this is an integral part of our ethos: the small-scale fishers are often unable to get out in poor weather, so in order to meet customer demand and be able to continuously supply, we sell their fish frozen when they are not able to get out to sea. In blind tastings, blast frozen, freshly landed fish tasted really good compared to fresh fish that is a few days old, in fact, many people preferred the frozen! We have recently been audited by the Soil Association, and are the UK’s first wild fishery permitted to use their logo. We also work with Exeter University’s marine biology department to help verify the science behind what we do, and videos and links to their research is publicly available.
