With the bad press Sea Bass has been receiving the SWHFA decided to highlight the ethical, and sustainable alternative to farmed or pair-trawl caught bass by introducing individual tags for each fish caught using hook and line.

The SWHFA numbered tags are inserted in the gills or mouth by the fishermen and should remain in the fish until taken out by the end-user.

As well as environmental reasons for choosing line-caught bass; for example the wild caught bass have more muscle and are less flabby than farmed bass as they have a 100% natural diet.

To reduce costs we are keen to reuse the tags.

If you would like to help us recycle the tags, please send them to: Seafood Cornwall Training, Admiralty Boathouse, 23 The Strand, Newlyn, Cornwall TR18 5HL.
