The event was a great success and we are very grateful to all of our sponsors that help to make this event bigger and better than ever before.

The Federation is proud to organise The British Fish Craft Championships®. It is one of the highlights of the year for many fishmonger and brings together people from all across the seafood sector – fishermen, fishmongers, processors, aquaculture and many more.

The best of the UK’s fish craftsmen demonstrate their skills in a range of exciting competitions throughout the day.

Open to anyone involved in the fish, poultry or game trade, the competitions test the skills that are necessary in the preparation of fish and poultry in readiness for use by the final consumer. Those skills normally provided free of charge by fishmongers when selling fish to the general public.

The judges are all experienced fishmongers from all parts of the country. While naturally taking into account regional variations, they award points for performance, presentation, hygiene and general appearance.
There are many stand alone competitions to enter with aggregate scores being calculated for the overall title of British Fish Craft Champion®. All competitions have four placings with prize money and trophies to be won.

The 67th Annual competition was held in Cardiff Bay; on August Bank Holiday weekend – Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th.
