Furness Fish and Game are Slow Fish producers.

How they got into producing Morecambe Bay Shrimp and why they chose this particular product:
Furness Fish and Game is a family run business started back in 1984 by Les Salisbury, who had been fishing for shrimps in Morecambe Bay since he was a boy. Furnish Fish and Game used to send their freshly caught shrimps to a factory to produce potted shrimps, and when the factory eventually closed they bought it to start producing themselves. Tradition and quality both define the Potted Shrimp produced today. The shrimp are expertly caught and although the horse and cart has been replaced by a tractor the same traditional production methods are still used. They now produce over 2000 pots a day doing all the potting by hand to a traditional 100 year old recipe.

Products that Furness Fish and Game are offering:
Potted shrimps are still the most popular item made by Furness Fish and Game, and has been a firm favourite for many years. Our Forgotten Foods partners Booths is also stocking Morecambe Bay Shrimps. Shelled unpotted shrimp are also available on the website. Furness Fish and Game also offer a range of other products mainly wild game as well as various other meat products.

Their favourite Morecambe Bay Shrimp recipe:
No debate here; Potted shrimps are what Furness Fish and Game are famous for and their traditional recipe has stood the test of time. Served simply with some bread, salad and a squeeze of lemon you have a simple yet delicious meal.
