Types of fish in France from the North Sea and the English Channel
What better than super-fresh seafood from the North Sea or Channel to treat yourself and do your-self good at the same time? The waters close to the French coast have always been a rich fishing ground, with more than 70 species currently caught there. The star trio in Boulogne is scallops, squid and whiting, but there’s also cod, plaice, haddock, sea bass, sole and lemon sole, turbot, prawns, crabs, lobsters, bouchot-grown mussels, and Omega 3 rich mackerel and herring.
To be a sustainable fish consumer and maintain this wealth of choice in our seas, follow the advice of the Mr Goodfish European eco-label, supported by Boulogne’s Nausicaà, the Centre National de la Mer. Mr Goodfish tells you which species to pick according to the season. It’s a website, an app and a blue logo that you’ll see in many fishmongers’ windows and on the menu in certain restau-rants. It makes eating fish good both for our health and for the planet.
