“I love fish, and I'd like to think that my kids will be able to love it too! I know it's good for your body and your brain so it's important that people now don't take it away from generations to come.”
“Fish shops and restaurants should be honest about the fish they buy. I want to know where the fish came from and how it was caught, and I'd like to see this information on fish counters and menus. Businesses often say that they only serve a particular thing because it's what customers want - but us customers can't tell them what we want if we don't know what it is that we're buying! British people don't tend to be very good at confrontation, or asking for information. If I can't find out what I want to know, I just shop or eat somewhere else.”

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.
