• 2020 Reduction Fisheries Report

    Published: 10/14/20

    By: SFP

    The 2020 Reduction Fisheries Report finds that overall sustainability performance in the reduction fisheries sector has continued to decrease slightly since 2018, although industry leadership and commitment remains solid. The decrease in performance was driven primarily by a drop in scoring of NE Atlantic blue whiting. Of the total volume in analyzed fisheries, 3 percent was rated very well-managed, 33 percent reasonably well-managed, 22 percent poorly managed, and 42 percent was not scored.

  • ASDA Bycatch Report and Audit

    Published: 09/17/20

    The study, conducted by Sustainable Fisheries Partnership, RSPB/Birdlife International and Whale and Dolphin Conservation, comprehensively assessed the “bycatch,” the capture of non-target species, in the fisheries that supply Asda’s seafood. The study identifies the fisheries that pose the greatest risk to endangered, threatened and protected (ETP) marine species and recommends actions that Asda can take to reduce these risks. The report was prepared in full collaboration with Asda and marks the first time that a major retailer has performed a systematic audit of the impacts of its seafood business on marine wildlife.
