The MSC has spent the last 20 years ensuring our oceans are healthy and full of life by promoting sustainable fishing practices and encouraging us to eat fish from eco-friendly fisheries. The blue fish with the white tick is a recognisable symbol on fish products in supermarkets, and the café will now proudly display the logo on its menu. In order to be recognised for certification, restaurants must serve dishes which source 95% of its seafood from sustainable fisheries.
We work closely with Smales & Son Fish Merchant to procure the best quality and eco-friendly haddock that we can, for our menu. We have found that using fish caught using modern trawlers in the Arctic waters of the Barents Sea and the North Atlantic best suits the needs of of our business from the points of view of consistency in quality, practicality and sustainability.
Next time you visit The Real Food Café, eat sustainably and choose the blue fish!
