The UK’s biggest seafood businesses urge the government to put sustainability at the heart of the Fisheries Bill.
Some of the biggest seafood businesses in the UK have come together to call on the government to enshrine sustainable fishing in law following Brexit.
In a letter to the Environment Secretary, George Eustice, businesses from the Sustainable Seafood Coalition (SSC) have argued that current ineffective management of fisheries limits the ability of UK fishing communities to sell to responsible UK businesses.
Instead, they are calling for a more sustainably-minded Fisheries Bill to reduce reliance on imports, improve responsible sourcing and boost the health of the oceans.
The letter is signed by 22 of the UK’s leading supermarkets, including Tesco, Waitrose & Partners and Sainsbury’s.
