Sustainability is central to the ethos of The Boathouse. Members of Environment Plymouth, our commitment involves protecting resources, fish stocks and ecosystems and carrying out best environmental practice.
Our fish and shellfish are caught in local waters by our very own day boats, the Sidney Rose and the Elin D. We use selective fishing methods that have almost zero levels of by catch, safeguarding fish stocks for the future.
Our scallop boat, the Sidney Rose, fishes only in designated areas for scalloping, soft, clean sea beds where the impact is far less, and the effects of tides and waves may exceed the impact of fishing activities.
The iconic scallop is famed for its beautiful fan shaped shell. Perfect for soap dishes and decorations, we leave a box each week for customers to help themselves.
Anything not caught by us is always sourced to support local fisheries or from certified sources.
We are proud to be plastic free, using biodegradable takeaway boxes, cups and paper straws and provide recycling bins to help our customers do their bit too!
