What happens to fish producers when their customers close up shop and their supply chains fold? They need to pivot and identify a new market to ensure their survival. That's exactly what the Cornwall Fisheries Community did with their partners Mindfully Wired Communications and their Director, Katrina Ryan, is on the podcast to tell us how they did it.

Seafood Cornwall: the umbrella initiative run by the Cornish Fish Producers' Organisation (www.cfpo.org.uk), Mindfully Wired, and consultant Chris Ranford. Seafood Cornwall celebrates the whole seafood supply chain - from fisherman to fish 'n' chips - in beautiful Cornwall, in the South West of England. The project's website includes details of our #FishToYourDoor delivery scheme, as well as recipe inspiration and supply chain information - www.seafoodcornwall.org.uk
