The end of fish and chips? Not quite
Scientists are warning that the traditional fish and chip supper could be a thing of the past as warming seas drive species such as cod and haddock away from the North Sea – but help could be at hand from sustainably farmed fish like rainbow trout.
The report says that in future battered squid and calamari could become the Friday night staple, but if they aren’t your thing then rainbow trout makes a lovely alternative to cod and haddock. We’ve been frying our own fish here at Kilnsey Park for over 20 years and our ‘pink fish and chips’ (so called because rainbow trout has a beautiful pink colour when cooked) are well known and loved in the local area.
As well as having a flavour that many prefer to conventional fish and chips, rainbow trout has lots of health benefits and can be sustainably farmed (in fact it’s one of the fish to have been awarded the Marine Conservation Society’s green light meaning it’s good for the planet).
So it’s not quite the end of fish and chips as we know it, just time for a change…
