The Master Fishmonger Standard, managed by the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers, certifies fishmongers with extensive professional skills and knowledge. The Guild has helped to uphold standards of Fishmongering since 1272. The programme provides a standardised certification scheme for fishmongers at all career levels from new entries through to the Master tier designed for those with over ten years experience, reserved for the finest fishmongers with exceptional standards and knowledge about the industry.

The Standard is now pleased to open up a free place, on the appropriate tier, for each of the fishmongers who reach the finals for the 2020 Farm Shop and Deli Fishmonger of the Year Award.
