More sustainable British fish! Scottish hake, plaice and whiting now certified!

Hake, place and whiting stocks in the Northeast Atlantic were certified to the MSC Fisheries Standard on the 3rd of July 2018.
The Scottish Fisheries Sustainable Accreditation Group (SFSAG) are leading the way in sustainability in the UK with six species in the MSC programme. Entering their first fishery for haddock into MSC assessment in 2009, followed closely by saithe, the hard work of the industry has paid off with last year's certification of iconic North Sea cod enabling the British staple to be put back on the menu for us all to enjoy.
