Group calls for Vegan Fish and Chips award category










To mark the 30th anniversary of The National Fish & Chip Awards, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has sent a letter to the CEO of Seafish calling for a "Best Vegan Fish and Chips" category to be added for 2019.

Dawn Carr, director of vegan corporate projects for the animal rights camapign, writes: “We all know that our oceans and the animals who live there are under threat.

"Adding a 'Best Vegan Fish and Chips' category to your awards would be a great way to showcase some of the progressive businesses offering an alternative to fish flesh and provide Seafish with the opportunity to highlight an option that takes some of the pressure off our troubled seas.”

Generally made from tofu wrapped in nori, battered, and fried, vegan fish is featured on the menus of previous National Fish & Chip Award winners – including Scotland's Land & Sea and Simpsons Fish & Chips in Gloucestershire – as well as a growing number of traditional chippies and restaurants.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that "animals are not ours to eat" – believes that in addition to sparing fish immense pain and distress, vegans are less prone to suffering from cancer, obesity, and diabetes than meat-eaters are and have a lower carbon footprint.
