This introductory seminar is excellent for anyone who wants to get into the trade and become a fishmonger. Fishmongering can be exciting and rewarding; however access into the business lacks a formal training route. This course is aimed at people who are not currently in the trade and is designed as a taster into the Seafood Industry. The day is also for people who are looking at setting up their own seafood business or for small businesses who would like to develop their staff.
Free with agreed funding from Billingsgate School (written application by email or letter is required outlining how the course will help access into the Seafood Industry)

Using both flat and round fish you will hone your fish filleting skills under the watchful eye of a fishmonger.
Our aim is to offer a practical and motivational introduction into the basics of fishmongering. There will be 'hands on' experience preparing fish, together with an introduction to Billingsgate Market. We will also offer direct contacts with our network of companies that regularly employ staff. Places on the course will be strictly limited. The day starts at 6.15am with a market visit. After breakfast you will spend the morning working on knife skills. Following an informal lunch (eating some of the morning's fish) there is time to discuss individual projects in a workshop environment.
Attendees are usually considering becoming a fishmonger or setting up their own fishmongering business.
During the day you will be preparing a selection of flat and round fish. Any fish that is left over attendees can take home.
You can definitely buy fish during the Market visit and although we have limited freezer space we have a good fish chiller to store any purchases for the duration of the course.
