|Putney Shoppers Joining 'The Fish Fight'|
Portland Scallops report changes in demand in purchases at Saturdays market
Jamie Walker of the Portland Scallop Company has seen a change in demand from Putney shoppers choices at his stall on Saturday mornings in Putney, since Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's programme Big Fish Fight on Channel 4 on 11th, 12th & 13th January.
Last year Putney shoppers purchased a lot of salmon & prawns but Jamie told PutneySW15.com that the company had already altered its stocks to demonstrate their support for sustainable species - all their fish are sourced from the West Country.
For those who are keen to get their fish from Jamie you will find him or Gerald every saturday at the market on Church Square from 9am - 4pm and this week he will be bring west country sourced lemon sole, monkfish, bass, gurnard & mackerel plus rope grown mussels and diver caught scallops.
