Skippers Fish Bar

A local fish bar has gained Marine Stewardship Council certification for serving sustainable fish to locals.


Skippers Fish Bar, in Euxton, can trace all the fish on their menu back to sustainable, well-managed fisheries.

Andrew Crook, owner of Skippers, said: “More and more customers are concerned about the provenience of the food they eat, they are also concerned about the environment and fish stocks.

“By becoming MSC certified it allows me to demonstrate that they can eat fish and chips from our outlet with a clear conscience!”

In 1999, Andrew turned down a job offer at British Aerospace to join his family fish and chip shop.

He added: “I had been around my parent’s fish and chip business since I was 9 years old so it was a natural progression for me really.”

George Clark from the MSC commented; “Congratulations to Skippers and the team on their MSC certification! They have found the new online process via the NFFF very straight forward and are already experiencing the benefits!

“The MSC’s blue ecolabel is reassuring for customers looking to enjoy Skipper’s tasty, traceable and certified sustainable fish.”
