The Fish Foundation's role is to increase awareness of the health benefits arising from higher consumption of the long chain omega-3 polyunsaturates derived from fish . It will do this by, among other things, acting as a source of expert information available to media personnel, manufacturers, retailers and health professionals; by production and wide distribution of leaflets, brochures, posters etc,  and by seeking to influence the key decision makers in nutrition policy, menu planning and meal presentation.

  April 2001

After a period of ten years, the Fish Foundation has  to scaled down operations with effect from April 30th 2001. This unfortunately means there are no further  free supplies of leaflets or posters available. Finding finance for a generic campaign such as this has proved increasingly difficult. Grateful thanks are due to those companies and organisations that have provided financial support in the past.

July  2002

    Requests for further supplies of leaflets and posters have continued to come in, to such an extent that it has been decided to make  available further copies of leaflets and posters on a self-financing basis. This process is now complete, and supplies are  available, on a cost price charge basis. Send an e-mail to rayrice@fish-foundation.org.uk for the details of costs and order procedures etc,

 The website will  continue  for the time being.
