Fishing and farming will always have
some impact on the environment, but we aim to source fish which is
caught or farmed using methods which are the least detrimental to the
marine environment, provide equitable working conditions and stable
incomes to those employed within them.
Morrisons Fish and Seafood Sourcing Policy provide the detail to
our suppliers of our wild capture and aquaculture sourcing
Each species that we stock has to meet a set of conditions
before it goes into our stores. Important sustainability criteria,
such as stock levels, fisheries management and where and how the
fish is caught are properly considered as part of our rigorous
“decision tree” process.
Morrisons are signatories to the Sustainable Fisheries
Partnership’s Ocean Disclosure Project
Included within our policy are commitments to the schemes,
initiatives or programmes which inform and support our work to
allow us to source from responsible supply chains.
Where issues are identified in either existing or new supply
chains we work hard with our suppliers to understand the challenges
being faced and agree action plans to address them, even if they
might take many years to deliver.
More details of the challenges that we have identified and what
we are doing to address them can be found in our Ocean Disclosure
