Warwickshire County Council Rogue Trader alert

Door to door rogue fish seller warning

Stratford upon Avon and South Warwickshire residents are warned to beware of rogue traders selling fish and shellfish door to door in the local area. Reports have been received that the sellers were using high pressure/aggressive selling techniques.

These are not local traders with regular rounds. These fish sellers load up often un-refrigerated vans with fish from ports many miles away before driving them to other areas to sell.

The experience of Trading Standards is that fish sold in this way by rogue doorstep sellers is often misdescribed (cheaper fish sold as more expensive species) overpriced and not properly weighed, leaving consumers to pay over the odds. The fish may not even be edible.
