About the Standard
We are passionate about fish and the environment, and believe that those who do good should be rewarded.
Developed by the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers (The Fishmongers’ Company), the Master Fishmonger Standard celebrates skilled craftmanship, quality seafood and responsible and sustainable practices.
Recognising achievement across all levels, the Standard provides a system of nationally-recognised grades which reflect levels of attainment within the fishmonger profession. By rewarding excellent practice across the trade, the Standard strives to encourage and enable a high standard of skill and the growth of knowledge about the seafood industry.
As a truly independent organisation, the Fishmongers’ Company governs the Standard, with training and assessment provided by the Company-approved regional delivery centres and assessors.
