Wales Mike scoops second at Fish Craft Champs

Veteran Cardiff fishmonger, Mike Crates, 54, who works at Ashton’s in Cardiff, came runner up in the British Fish Craft Championships held in Cardiff Bay on September 2 – for the 20th time.

Mike, one of the crowd’s favourites, was just four points behind the winner, Ghopal Nandy from M&J Seafoods in Birmingham.

Cardiff’s favourite did collect the Trafalgar Challenge Cup for scoring the greatest number of points in any single competition, and also won the Snowden Trophy, for the highest scoring competitor from an independent fishmongers.

Other Ashton’s competitors also covered themselves in glory.

Former champion, Nick Wood, became National Poultry Champion, and colleague Kevin Todd, won the Quayside Shellfish Championship.

Mike Crates was upbeat about coming second yet again.

“I had a great day, and there’s always next year,” he said.

Entries for the British Fish Craft Championships 2012 came from all corners of the UK.

A massive three tons of fresh fish was skinned, filleted, trimmed and sliced by the competing fishmongers.

All this fabulous, expertly handled fish was sold to the public at bargain prices, with the proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Relief.

2012 is the British Fish Craft Championship’s Diamond Jubilee.
