FISH eaters are being urged to ditch traditional favourites such as cod and haddock for more unusual options to ease pressure on the industry.
The Marine Conservation Society has updated its Good Fish Guide, detailing which are the best fish to eat in terms of sustainability, with some new “best choice” additions that could be the fish suppers of the future.
The traditional cod and chips could soon be a thing of the past as cod populations shrink worldwide
The new Good Fish Guide recommends ten alternatives, including North Sea dab and Cornish hake, as well as herring and mackerel.
The organisation says that as the UK prepares to leave the EU and fisheries talks are expected to try to secure a bigger share of the fish post-Brexit, now may be the time to swap out the big five for new options.
Bernadette Clarke of the Marine Conservation Society said: “These could, and should be, the fish supper of the future.”
“UK consumers tend to stick to their tried and tested top five – both in taste and familiarity but not always sustainability.

“Cod, tuna, salmon, haddock and prawns, from the right sources are all OK, but there’s so much more to explore and the new additions to the best choice list are a good place to start.”
The charity said local fishermen will need more support post-Brexit.
Red mullet, wild seabass from Biscay and Atlantic bigeye are among the fisheries sliding down on to the red list of fish to avoid, while undulate ray from the English Channel, albacore from the Mediterranean and bigeye from western central Pacific Ocean have moved off the red list.
