Wing of St Mawes fish waste grant

Wing of St Mawes owner Rob Wing is delighted to announce a second Objective One fisheries grant for £1,630 that will provide equipment to test whether fish waste can be turned into a food product.

The grant will fund a specialist pump, which is a part of the production process to turn fish waste into a fish stock for cooking. If the trial is a success it will provide financial value for every part of the fish bought by the company including fish heads, bones and skins.

Alison Elvey Objective One Fisheries Programme Manager stated, “Ensuring that every part of Cornish fish is fully utilised is of benefit to both the fishing industry and the Cornish Economy. Developing a process for producing fish stock is an excellent way of adding value!”

Rob Wing, owner of Wing of St Mawes added: “We are very excited to be pioneering in Cornwall a project that will turn fish by-products into high quality fish stock. We believe that all possible value must be extracted from fish landed in Cornish ports."
