Seafood industry working conditions
An important part of our approach is to not only ensure that the people employed within our seafood supply chains are paid fairly and given safe working conditions but also have the opportunity to work
in the industry of their choice.
Seafish Responsible Fishing Scheme
The fishing industry is recognised as being one of the most dangerous not just here in the UK but all over the world. In 2012 we committed to source all our UK caught and landed wild capture seafood
from Seafish Responsible Fishing Scheme certified vessels.
As we sell imported seafood as well we work with Seafish to explore Vessel Improvement Projects and the adoption of the scheme internationally.
Transparency and visibility of seafood supply chains isn’t always easy to achieve but understanding that without it we aren’t able to assess the work and living conditions of the people employed within
them has focused our work in this area.
