Fish is a superfood which is packed with vitamins and minerals. It is a major source of omega-3, fatty acids and can help to protect against a range of diseases including heart disease and arthritis.
So why is the UK a nation of dwindling fish eaters? A healthy diet should include at least two portions of fish a week but only 28% of people fulfil this.
Given the number of cookery programmes filmed in exotic locations extolling the virtues of eating fish you wouldn’t think this would be the case. The myth that is difficult to cook , which puts people off, but can this really be the reason?
Research has suggested that if the cost was cheaper, more people would eat it. However if you are buying good quality fish which has been sustainably sourced the costs generally reflect this, and are not as much as people may perceive.
Amazingly, over 50% of people think that frozen fish destroys the nutrients in the fish and that fresh fish are more environmentally friendly. This couldn’t be further from the truth. At Wraggs Seafoods we only provide Frozen-at-Sea Fish, meaning that the fish is frozen within 2 – 6 hours of being caught. This traps the nutrients in the fish, enabling it to stay as fresh as the moment it left the sea, so our customers receive the very best product.
All of our fish is also fully traceable to source and we work with only reputable industry leaders in the field.
Believe it or not fish from your local fish & chip shop does count towards your two portions of fish a week, so you can head to your local shop supplied by Wraggs Seafoods safe in the knowledge that the fish you are eating is the most fresh, healthy and sustainable there is.
