Citizens of the Earth

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Fish-Tales-Man-Sign-Off-Device-03-300x148-300x148For one who’s travelled to very few places across the world, I still tend to think of myself as a citizen of the Earth.

Oh, I love my home town and my country- and I love the house I live in. But the world now – in my simple eyes and mind – is just one large community.

So, I welcome the integration of other nationalities who want to come to our wonderful homeland and share its principles with us, in the same way that many British citizens make the journeys to other countries and integrate there.


Eastern Thai Salmon Curry

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

A dish with quite a few ingredients but don’t be put off, it’s easy to make and really tasty!

This recipe makes a generous supper for two.  If you prefer, add some extra vegetables and break the salmon into smaller chunks and it could even stretch to feed an extra guest!

Silver for our green efforts!

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

The team at BigFish Brand is proud to have once again achieved a Silver accreditation in the national Investors in the Environment (iiE) scheme

Silver Award 2016-17C

Investors in the Environment is a national environmental accreditation scheme. It is designed to help organisations save time and money, reduce their impact on the environment and get promoted for their green credentials.

Participation means that we are comprehensively audited each year on our environmental approach.  This includes a review of our use of energy, water and transport; how we deal with waste and recycling; our interaction with our local community and our overall approach to improving our environmental impact.

During our audit, the assessor commented that we have moved forward over the past year to the point where we are close to achieving our ‘Green’ level accreditation, which is the highest level of  iiE certification.

Well done to everyone at BigFish Brand, keep up the good work!

Cleethorpes Colour Fun Run!

Sunday, September 10th, 2017

Keeping true to our Grimsby roots is important to everyone at JCS Fish and we love taking part in local charity events! We had lots of fun recently in the Cleethorpes Colour Run, when a team of ten from JCS Fish took on the 5k course, getting totally Technicolor in the process!


Thanks to all the support from friends and family who helped us raise money for Inspire TCI – Supporting Local Champions which works with men, women and children in the Grimsby and Cleethorpes area to help them to achieve their dreams of becoming champions in their chosen sport.

We’re already looking forward to our next challenge!

Five things that make Organic Salmon special

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Organic September is the time to celebrate all things organic, including of course our premium BigFish Brand Organic salmon fillets! This really is the very best quality salmon you can buy, so here are the reasons why it’s special – and worth paying a little more for!


1. Organic at every stage of life… Our Organic salmon are grown from organic smolts (juvenile fish). These are only reared in the spring, following the salmon’s natural wild reproductive cycle.

2. A balanced diet… These salmon eat feed made only with purely organic-approved, natural ingredients from sustainable sources which are GMO free. The feed includes at least 50% fishmeal made from off-cuts intended for human consumption.

3. Perfectly pink….Only natural pigments are used in organic salmon feed, whilst some conventional producers employ synthetic additives to enhance the pink colour of salmon flesh

4. More freedom to roam… Salmon in organic systems are given more room to grow and shoal in their pens – usually twice as much space per fish than conventional systems.

5. Clean living… Organic salmon are reared in the cleanest possible environment, with an especially strong flow of clean salt water.  This and the low stocking density ensures they are lean and strong, which makes for a better tasting fish!
