Cornish seafood is fabulous! Cooking with fresh local sustainable seafood is good for you, good for the environment, good for local fishermen and tastes great too! 
Many of us are out of the habit of eating fresh local seafood but gradually things are changing and people are realising how tasty and healthy fresh seafood is for us! In Cornwall we are lucky to have a wide selection of seafood which is harvested from healthy fish stocks using a range of different methods of fishing and fish farming many of which have minimal impact on the environment.  
Cornwall Wildlife Trust's brilliant website the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide is encouraging more people to get behind their local fishing industry and eat more local, sustainable seafood. One way that you can get involved is to enter our Cornish Master fish or Junior Master Fish  2016 Recipe competition!  Simply buy yourself some recommended Cornish seafood and  cook yourself a nice meal! Take some photos of your creation and fill in our simple entry form, then email the completed form and a photo to 

Please remember to only send in recipes that use seafood recommended by Cornwall good Seafood Guide, You can check our mobile friendly website for details on what is recommend at And look out for our ‘RECOMMENDED’ logo. The website also features a where to buy directory which lists businesses in Cornwall who sell recommended seafood.
Where possible also source the other ingredients you use locally!  We are not looking for the most complicated recipe in fact quite the opposite – we will reward those who can demonstrate how easy it is to create fabulous seafood dishes – that’s the beauty of seafood , its actually easy to cook once you know how! 
Our panel of experienced seafood chefs and fishmongers will score the entries.
Head judge Dominic Sadler has said that he may even put the winning recipes on the menu at his restaurant, the Old Sail loft!  With a superb array of prizes including tickets to Looe Music festival which is set to be bigger and better than ever in 2016 we hope that lots of people will send in their entries!
