"Regrettably we live in an increasingly bureaucratic world where individuals and small businesses can feel powerless against a rising tide of rules and regulations. The SAGB has a vital role representing the shellfish industry in all its forms. We have found their services invaluable helping us on occasions, they know who to contact and their voice carries weight representing the whole industry. My advice to prospective members contemplating joining is to think of it as insurance – you never know when you might need it!"
Don't just take our word for it, see what other people think about us!
"As a consultant working at the interface between research, fishery management and shellfisheries, membership of SAGBPro is essential. SAGBPro membership provides me with access to industry expertise and a network of shellfish industry professional contacts"
Dr Andy Woolmer
"There are often mishaps and misunderstandings in the retailing of live molluscs and crustaceans, it is therefore important to belong to an organisation that can provide you with an excellent level of expertise, especially in this time of overburdening bureaucracy. Membership of SAGB is invaluable."
John Adams MBE
"With the massive growth of shellfish production in the UK and the every growing popularity of shellfish in the UK restaurant sector, the SAGB are playing a key role in the promotion of the health benefits of shellfish and also popularising the wide and distinct variation in the tastes and flavours of all the shellfish grown in and around our shores. The tasting materials for oysters and crustacea have been a huge success with the customers eating in our restaurants."
