In honour of National Fish and Chip Day (6 June), PETA is naming its top picks for vegan fish and chips, and Brighton-based eatery The No Catch Co. has netted a leading spot for its battered “cod” and smoked “haddock”, which you can enjoy with triple-cooked skin-on chips, mushy peas, and homemade vegan tartare sauce. The all-vegan restaurant’s impressive, ocean-inspired menu also includes Popcorn Prawnz, lemon “shrimp”, and vegan calamari.

The No Catch Co.’s fabulous vegan fish is a real catch that celebrates the sea without harming the animals who live there,” says PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects Dawn Carr. “PETA’s top picks will help people see food differently, and we’re calling on caring individuals everywhere to leave the violence of the fishing industry in the past by enjoying some delicious, hearty vegan seafood.”

PETA points out that millions of non-target marine animals die each year when they’re accidentally caught in fishing nets – “bycatch” is one of the biggest threats to marine biodiversity worldwide and has resulted in widespread species extinction, habitat destruction, and irreversible damage to ecosystems. And commercial fishing is always fatal for fish. Each person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals every year, dramatically shrinks their carbon footprint, and avoids ingesting the many toxic chemicals found in the flesh of fish, including mercury, lead, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). PETA offers a free vegan starter kit for those ready to make the switch.

PETA is also recognising #fish in Edinburgh, Harbour Lights in Falmouth, Seabreeze Fish and Chips in North Yorkshire, Lucy’s Chips in Norwich, Land & Sea Fish & Chip Shop in Falkirk, Milton Fish & Chips in Pembrokeshire, The Dove and Unity Diner in London, and Papa’s Fish and Chips, which has 11 locations scattered throughout the UK, for their compassionate offerings.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit or follow the group on FacebookTikTokX, or Instagram.
