UK retailers “fall behind on MSC certified sustainable fish” as certified cod reaches one million tonnes, says the MSC; Sainsbury’s n°1

Figures released for the first time Friday (January 30, 2015) by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) lead credence to the argument that there is a “growing gap between supermarkets when it comes to offering their customers ecolabelled sustainable seafood choices and protecting ocean environments.” At the same time, the availability of MSC certified fish is better than ever with a million tonnes of MSC certified cod caught last year. Since 2010, Sainsbury’s has been top of the table in terms of numbers of products stocked, with 163 MSC-certified seafood products for the last financial year. The retailer’s product numbers are almost twice its closest competitor, Waitrose, which is in second place with 79 certified seafood products and more than three times the number of products stocked by M&S. Despite a growing demand for demonstrably sustainable seafood, Tesco has stalled with the number of MSC ecolabelled products on its shelves going from 17 in 2010 to 18 in 2014. Morrison’s commitment to certified sustainable seafood has dropped from 12 to 8 and Asda has similarly fallen from 27 to 21 certified sustainable products over the same period.
