Fish City Wins UK Top Three Good Catch – Sustainable Award

Award winning Fish City goes forward to represent Northern Ireland as they are presented with the UK’s Top 3 GOOD CATCH Sustainable Award, organised by Seafish.

The award ceremony will be held in London during January 2018, and both John and Grainne Lavery of Fish City are delighted that the business has received this incredible recognition.

“Sustainability is central to our Policy on protecting the environment at Fish City”, says Grainne of the ground-breaking fish and chip restaurant & takeaway. “We have worked hard to ensure our customers and partners are fully informed, as we promote sustainability, ethically sourced seafood and of course health and wellbeing.

“We designed a Fish City ‘Kids Club’ partnering with local schools. We educate the children on these issues while encouraging them to try the different kinds of sustainable seafood, and of course have some fun!”

Fish City has already achieved several awards this year, among which are Seafood Restaurant of the year and runner up on the Sustainable Tourism Award. Just last week it was announced they also won Top 3 UK Healthy Eating award.

“When we change our menu, we take great care and attention to ensure the seafood we chose in our dishes are MSC certified and MCS ethically sourced”, says John. He continued, “We need to have an absolute guarantee that stock from any designated area is sustainable before we decide to use it.

“We can source details including where it was caught right down to what ship it came in on! It is all about full traceability and provenance. We also research on the MSC Good Fish Guide to confirm if there have been any changes to the recommendations and ratings of the seafood we use.

“We strongly believe it is important to ensure that oceans and fish stocks are secure for future generations.  Supporting sustainability and looking after the environment is ultimately good for everyone, including our customers.”

The National Fish & Chip Awards’ 30th anniversary ceremony will be held in London on 25 January 2018. For further information on Fish City Belfast go to or follow on @fishcitybelfast or #fishcitybelfast, .
