Fish labelling

Click here for a guide to sustainable seafood labellingAs ethical and environmental awareness increases, consumers are demanding more information and guidance on the ethical or environmental performance of the products they purchase.

With the exception of ‘dolphin-friendly’ or ‘dolphin-safe’ labelling of canned tuna, few marine products from wild caught fisheries are labelled to promote environmental responsibility. This is changing, however, as interest in accreditation of fisheries and labelling of fish products as a measure to harness consumer support for conserving fish stocks develops.

A number of organisations have developed labels to promote the quality and/or environmental credentials of wild-caught or farmed fish.
