Under 10m fishermen Ashley sells her fresh catch to local fishmonger, Passion for Seafood, who supports local fisheries buying small quantities of fish and telling the net to plate story to customers
Ashley Mullenger is an U10m day boat fishermen out of Wells-next-the-sea. She wanted to sell directly to consumers, but she didn’t have the facilities or funds to set it up.
“If we had a Mike Warner in every town, the fishing industry would be better supported.”
"When holidaymakers go to destinations such as Spain they often unknowingly eat British seafood - and will sample produce there that they never touch at home. Mike would like to reverse a perverse trend which means that while the UK exports about 80% of the seafood it catches, the seafood UK consumers buy here is 80% imported"
