Fish and Smoke Shed, Colyton, EX24 6LS


Simon passed his Recognised Fishmonger course in early 2021 with the Master Fishmongers Standard.

Requiring a good knowledge of the fishing industry as a whole and an assessment based practical presentation the assessor's comments were as follows;

"I would say that Simon is very competent in his knowledge of the tasks he is carrying out and his skills certainly worthy of the tier he is applying for. For much of his video I could have assumed that he was going for the advance tier not the recognised, which is reflected in the marking. Additionally, his preparation area is clean/tidy and he uses the correct tools for each task."

Passionate about fish and the environment, whilst upholding the heritage and craftmanship of the fishmonger trade, the Master Fishmonger Standard celebrates professional excellence by certifying fishmongers with extensive professional skills and knowledge.

To be a certified MFS Fishmonger shows a true commitment to the fish trade and to the future of our oceans.
