Certification of the Poole Clam & Cockle Fishery

The Poole clam & Cockle is the first fishery in the world to be awarded both RFS and MSC certification as a result of successful collaboration between managers and fishermen, the Southern IFCA and the Poole & District Fishermen’s Association.

“The Poole Harbour clam and cockle fishery is one of the most extraordinary in the U.K., with only a handful of small boats being seasonally allowed to catch clams and cockles, supporting a sustainable stock. The experience of eating them is incredible, the juices are salty and sweet and the texture is wonderfully firm.”

Mitch Tonks, award-winning chef, restaurateur and food writer
