Skipton fish and chip restaurant Bizzie Lizzie's are supporting 'sustainable fishing' to protect habitats and ensure those who depend on fishing can maintain their livelihoods.

  • Bizzie Lizzie's source their fish from Icelandic waters which is frozen at sea within hours of being caught to maintain freshness. 
  • The Skipton restaurant have been speaking ahead of National Fishing Month in August.

Ahead of National Fishing Month next month, Skipton fish and chip restaurant Bizzie Lizzie's have spoken out about their support of sustainable fishing methods to ensure fishing will continue for generations to come.

Bizzie Lizzie's use only the best quality cod and haddock sourced from suppliers certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, who ensure habitats are respected and those who depend on fishing as a livelihood are protected.

The restaurant have vessels who fish on their behalf in Icelandic waters, with the fish being skinned and filleted within hours of being caught before being frozen at sea to maintain freshness.

With fish delivered to the restaurant two or three times every week, Bizzie Lizzie's are keen to place an emphasis on sustainable fishing as approved by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC):

"We only go to suppliers who have the MSC stamp of approval... They can do DNA testing on the fish to tell you where it was fished from and if that's not on the traceability list then there's a problem!"
