The sustainability of shellfish can vary significantly depending on how and where it has been caught or farmed. Many single species are caught or farmed in a variety of ways and this range shows that, within a species, some sources may be more sustainable than others.
We use the 1-5 traffic light system developed by the Marine Conservation Society to help you choose the most environmentally sustainable shellfish.
'Best choices' are rated 1 and 2 (green), 'Fish to Avoid' are rated 5 (red). Ratings 3 and 4 mean 'Think' (yellow and amber), as there are better rated alternatives.
Brown crab stocks are relatively healthy in Cornish waters and the main fishing method used for brown crab is potting. This is a selective fishing method, with very little impact on the seabed. As a result pot caught brown crab is one of the most sustainable choices of seafood you can make. Undersized and berried crabs can be returned safely to the sea unharmed, so there is no problem with killing undersized crabs.
