Brendan Southworth, Sodexo
Brendan Southworth is a Food Service Assistant for Sodexo. He shares his company's concern about sustainable fish, and says: "We're depleting the ocean's fish stocks at the moment. I know tuna is in trouble. It would be a terrible tragedy if future generations couldn't eat fish."

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.
