About Our Fish
Our fish is caught in the cold waters of the Artic Ocean. As a member of the Marine Stewardshiop Council we can trace the date and location of all our fish so you can be sure that it has been caught in a sustainable way.
The Marine Stewardship Council is an international non-profit organisation. They recognise and reward efforts to protect oceans and safeguard seafood supplies for the future.
They want future generations to be able to enjoy seafood and oceans full of life, forever.
Their vision is of the world’s oceans teeming with life, and seafood supplies safeguarded for this and future generations.
Their mission is to use their ecolabel and fishery certification program to contribute to the health of the world’s oceans by recognising and rewarding sustainable fishing practices, influencing the choices people make when buying seafood and working with the industry to transform the seafood market to a sustainable basis.
Wild, traceable, sustainable: the blue fish label is only applied to wild fish or seafood from fisheries that have been certified to the MSC Fisheries Standard, a science-based set of requirements for sustainable fishing.
A certified sustainable source
Each MSC certified fishery has been independently assessed on its specific impacts to wild fish populations and the ecosystems they're part of.
Handled with care
All along the supply chain, from ocean to plate, MSC certified fish and seafood is separated from non-certified. It is clearly labelled so it can be traced to a certified sustainable fishery.
Regular DNA testing has shown that MSC labelled products are correctly labelled. So, you can trust that the fish is what its packaging or menu says it is.
