Sustainable seafood top of menu for British restaurant chains
Fish2Fork and the Marine Conservation Society have joined forces to assess the sustainability of seafood sold at some of the biggest restaurant chains in the UK.
Using the only system that robustly measures the sustainability of the seafood served by restaurants, the partnership aims to get to a point where not a single restaurant in Britain serves threatened or endangered species of fish or shellfish.
Sam Fanshawe, chief executive of the Marine Conservation Society said: “Seafood is increasingly popular in restaurants, so never has it been more important to help chefs and diners make the right choices to protect our fish for the future.
"By combining our efforts, MCS and Fish2fork can inform many more restaurants of the latest advice on sustainable seafood based on the MCS Fishonline and Good Fish Guide ratings. Working together through the Fish2fork website and Diner Ratings, we can encourage a growing number of seafood lovers to support those restaurants that put sustainability high on the menu.”
