The Fish Society was founded by Alistair Blair: “Fish landed and auctioned on Day 1 in Cornwall, The Hebrides, Aberdeen and Norfolk, and indeed in the big French port of Boulogne is processed and frozen by us on Day 2. We believe that unless you’re buying fresh fish at the port to eat today or tomorrow, frozen is ultimately superior – as long as the fish being frozen is of the highest quality.
“Quality is not just a matter of freshness. It’s also about cut and trim. Over nearly 25 years we have discerned exactly what our very discerning customers want and that is what we give them.
“And we are about service: ‘Go the extra mile’ and ‘Do as you would be done by’.
“Our fish and our overall service are intended to meet the highest standards. If you are not happy, we guarantee to resolve the situation quickly.”
Karen can usually be found glued to her computer or at the stables. Having edited several national magazines she co-founded Eclipse Magazine in 2008 after realising that many of her friends were nervous about going racing due to lack of information – what to wear, how to bet etc.
She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine.
If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse…!!)
