Fish and chips are the undisputed national dish of great britain, becoming a cultural and culinary symbol of our country, instantly recognized as british the world over.
Fried fish was first introduced to london by jewish immigrants from portugal and spain probably as far back as the 17th century. American president thomas jefferson described eating ‘fried fish in the jewish fashion’ on a visit to the capital at the end of the 18th century and even charles dickens makes reference to a fried fish warehouse in oliver twist. Fried potatoes as chips probably originate from belgium.
The origins and development of the dish in the mid -19th century are closely associated with the industrial revolution and it has maintained huge popularity as the original, affordable and nutritious takeaway ever since.
Dickens was indeed an early advocate of the trade also recounting ‘husky chips of potatoes, fried with some reluctant drops of oil’ in ‘a tale of two cities’, published in 1859.
Elsewhere in the british isles; in scotland, dundee city council claims that “…In the 1870s, that glory of british gastronomy – the chip – was first sold by belgian immigrant edward de gernier in the city’s greenmarket.”
Sustainable sources when thinking about the fish frying industry, in terms of the core product (fish) to be sustainable, the fishery must be managed in a way that allows the target fish population to be at a healthy enough level to be able to naturally reproduce at a rate that then allows fishing to continue indefinitely without overexploiting the resources.
To certify sustainability, the most recognised method is through working with the marine stewardship council (msc).
The msc ‘blue tick’ ecolabel is the most trusted and recognised indicator of seafood sustainability and is used to show that seafood has come from an independently certified sustainable fishery. The blue tick is becoming increasingly familiar to consumers, can be awarded at any point of the supply chain, to fisheries, suppliers and vendors and is really the most trusted way of knowing that your fish is responsibly sourced.
For a fish and chip shop to display the msc ecolabel it will need to attain chain of custody.
