Sustain Sustainable Fish Advice

How can larger employers help?

Employers of large numbers of staff usually have canteens or foodservice outlets for their employees. They also serve food at meetings and events. Such businesses could ensure that all fish served is from sustainable sources, and communicate this to employees and visitors. There are two main things that large employers and workplaces can do to help support Sustainable Fish towns and cities.

Serve sustainable fish

You can get your caterer, and food outlets on your premises to serve sustainable fish in the canteen and for food for meetings and events. Talk to the people who provide your catering and tell them you want your organisation to sign up to the Sustainable Fish City pledge.

Promote sustainable fish

Your organisation can also use this commitment to tell staff, clients and visitors about the important issue of sustainable fish. We can work with you to develop posters or material for your intranet, and will share ideas from participating organisations on this website. Get in touch to find out more.

Get in touch, and we’ll talk you through the process. If you’ve already taken action on sustainable fish, let us know and we’ll feature your story on the website to inspire others to join in. Telephone Ruth Westcott on 020 3559 6777 or email:


Mike Duckett, Royal Brompton Hospital“We are passionate about sustainable food sources and looking after the environment for the future. We were prompted to act by hearing about the loss of the fishing areas through over-fishing and other non-sustainable practices.”
Mike Duckett, ex Head of Catering, Royal Brompton Hospital

Gary Rhodes, Chef Consultant, Restaurant Associates“Fish is such a wonderfully versatile, nutritious food and with so many exciting varieties available to us it is vital that we encourage people to try lesser known species and raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding marine resources to ensure a sustainable future for our fish and seafood.”
Gary Rhodes, Chef Consultant, Restaurant Associates

We're working on it - So can you!

Sustainable Fish: A campaign to protect precious marine environments and fishing livelihoods, and call for fish to be bought from sustainable sources. We want to show what can be done if people and organisations make a concerted effort to change their buying habits.
