Responsibly sourced seafood can be one of the lowest-impact protein options around. It’s a healthy, nutritious food source that can help feed a population that’s only getting bigger. But we recognise the profound impact fishing can have on the environment and don’t shy away from the challenges facing the industry. That’s why we have embraced a holistic approach to our sustainability efforts working in harmony to protect the delicate ecosystems that nurture our oceans, as well as striving to look after people working to produce our fish.

Planet - Our Commitment to Sustainable Practices

We are dedicated to reducing our impact on the oceans by sourcing seafood responsibly. Transparency and traceability underlines everything we do.

Our fishers adhere to the highest sustainability standards to ensure the oceans’ biodiversity can be preserved for generations to come, and our farmers ensure our fish are reared in a way that puts their welfare first.

People - Our Commitment to Enhancing Lives

The fisheries and aquaculture sectors support the livelihoods of millions of people worldwide, creating jobs and ensuring a vital source of food. However, despite the existence of global laws and systems, the sad reality is that people working in these supply chains can be subjected to dangerous working conditions, modern slavery, and other extreme human rights abuses.

Our vision here is clear: we want to drive change and enhance lives through fish by protecting human rights and ensuring decent working conditions for all those that work in or for our business. It’s been so good to see the positive effect we have on our employees and communities associated with our operation, as well as the impact we’ve made with our supply chains.

But the hard work’s far from done. And we’re ready to face the challenges that lie ahead.
