Visser tot vork

Choose local fish from Belgian fishermen!

With the campaign “Fisherman to Fork! Eat local fish.", Flavourite Bruges, along with its partners: Province of West Flanders, Visit Bruges, VLAM, Rederscentrale (“Shipowners' Federation” - Recognised producer organisation and trade association of the Sea Fishery Shipowners), and Visgro vzw (the non-profit Professional Association for the Fishing Sector), is aiming to put "Local Fish", in the spotlight between 28 August and 1 October, thereby also supporting the local fishermen and fishing sector. To this end, 46 Bruges North Sea fishing ambassadors were selected.

Visit them between 28 August and 1 October and discover what our North Sea has to offer. Book a table with one of the participating chefs and taste their sublime creations with local fish species; or prepare "Local Fish" yourself, and buy it through our fishmongers and wholesalers. All the participants were selected based on sustainability. For example, gourmet chefs have committed to working exclusively with local fish species. The (fish) wholesalers and shipping companies are committed to the principles of fishery sustainability certification.

Various other activities will also be organised during the Fisherman to Fork month.

  • On 28 August, 6 Bruges fish ambassadors will prepare local fish. Come to the Vismarkt (Fish Market) from 1.00 p.m. to see several excellent cookery demonstrations.
  • Want to be creative with local fish? And are you a gifted amateur cook? On 16 September, you can take part in our amateur cooking competition and win fantastic prizes!
  • Would you like to enjoy some amazing culinary treats? Then come to the closing event in Zeebrugge on 1 October, where the fish ambassadors will make your mouths water with their most tantalising fish creations.
