Sustainable fish updates 2006




Autumn 2006

Formation of Taking Stock group
Sustain co-ordinated a meeting in an informal series called Taking Stock on 27 July, bringing together non-governmental and campaign organisations to discuss how to pursue the issue of sustainable fish. The next will take place on 2 November. Between meetings there is a lively email exchange and, so far, this is proving to be a helpful mechanism for interested groups to share intelligence. It has also stimulated some activity, including encouraging groups to write to the celebrity chef, James Martin, asking him to incorporate sustainability into his work for the industry body, Seafish, during their “two a week” seafish promotion week in October.  Meanwhile, there are some signs that the Food Standards Agency is reviewing its policy (promoting consumption of two portions of fish a week, with one being oily fish) with a view to possibly acknowledging the problem of declining fish stocks.
