“I’ve watched the movie ‘End of the Line’, and was shocked that our massive consumption of fish is seriously damaging fish stocks around the world. Fish are not only important to human diets but an essential part of ecological systems in the sea. It is our responsibility as humans to protect fish for the future of all marine life.”
“I try to choose sustainable fish. What I would like caterers to tell me about is where the fish comes from or to add sustainable fish labels in the menus, so that as a consumer it is easier to choose sustainable fish.”
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Fish Fight
I have been travelling around the UK meeting fishermen, marine conservationists, politicians, supermarkets bosses, and of course fish-eating members of the public. It has changed the way I think about fish.

Good ethics should be part of everyday business. Many restaurants and caterers in this are helping to protect our precious marine resources. They should get rightful recognition and inspire others to do the same.
Rosie Boycott, London Food Board
Taking a sustainable approach to fish is critical to the food security of our city. It is shocking to think that within our lifetimes, we could lose some of our favourite species from the seas forever.
