Buying seafood at the right time of year means you’re not only eating it when it’s at its best, but you’re also helping to support a more sustainable local fishery which lets the season, rather than market demand, dictate what is landed.

Explore our month-by-month guide to find out what Scottish seafood we should be buying now, and during the rest of the year.

If you want to find out more about seasonal seafood species – check out this useful fish guide by the Seafish Authority.

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) also promote sustainable fishing practices so that the world’s seafood supplies are protected for future generations. To find out what UK outlets are MSC certified click here.

Visit Scotland’s Taste our Best scheme recognises food outlets that strive for sustainability by sourcing food locally to keep food miles to a minimum. To search for Taste Our Best accredited businesses and food outlets click here.
