Food Writing | Fisheries Journalism | Sustainable Seafood Consultancy
Mike Warner writes about and advises on all aspects of the commercial UK fishing industry and travels the country talking to fishermen and producers about the native fish and shellfish landed to our ports. He then takes their stories and relays them in a consumer-facing way, to better educate, inform and enthuse chefs, restaurateurs, food service and media professionals and the general public.
He writes technical, creative and PR copy for commercial fishing and food/lifestyle publications and is a regular features contributor to Country Life magazine. Mike has a particular interest in the Under 10 metre, inshore fishing fleet and its economic importance, heritage and sustainability in the communities that it supports. He also conducts bespoke tours for interested parties to fishing ports and markets around the UK, where they get to ’meet the fishermen’ and are shown the 'net to plate’ story and the work involved in the sustainable harvesting of our seas.
