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.
