The Local Catch

Overfishing, CO2 footprint and plastic packaging are just three problems associated with large-scale fishing. By choosing to support small scale, local fishers instead, we can reduce the effects of transportation, plastic packaging and impacts on ocean ecosystems.

The Local Catch is a sustainable packaging system for small scale fishers that helps them to sell their catch directly from their boats. The beeswax and rapeseed oil lined paper bags are both water-resistant and biodegradable, and can double as a food waste bag once the fish has been brought home & cleaned. Every fisher marks their bags with a personal stamp displaying the fish’s weight, date caught, the boat’s name and fishing tools used.
