British Fish Craft Championships®

British Fish Craft Championships


The Federation organises The British Fish Craft Championships®.
The best of the UK's fish craftsmen demonstrate their skills in a range of exciting competitions throughout the day.

Open to anyone involved in the fish, poultry or game trade, the competitions test the skills that are necessary in the preparation of fish and poultry in readiness for use by the final consumer. Those skills normally provided free of charge by fishmongers when selling fish to the general public.

The judges are all experienced fishmongers from all parts of the country. While naturally taking into account regional variations, they award points for performance, presentation, hygiene and general appearance.
There are many stand alone competitions to enter with aggregate scores being calculated for the overall title of British Fish Craft Champion®. All competitions have four placings with prize money and trophies to be won.

This year's 65th Annual competition will be held at Billingsgate Market, London. To download the brochure or entry forms for the competition, please use the links below;
