On the Black Isle we’re surrounded by the sea, and although these days very little fish is landed in our harbours, fish is still a local resource, and it can be exploited in a sustainable way – although it isn’t always. Around the world, 90% of fisheries are fully- or over-exploited, and they also face additional pressure from climate change, ocean acidification and pollution, so we should take care to choose wisely!
Eating more local produce...
If you have kids who do the shopping with you, why not keep them entertained by asking them to pick an item from your shopping list and then try to find the most local version of it they can?
Why not stock up on local veg when they're in season and cheaper, and find recipes that make the most of them?
