As the world's population continues to grow and demand for fish increases, aquaculture has a key role to play in reducing sourcing pressure on wild fish stocks. It's also a more efficient way to grow protein-rich food than the farming of land animals.
Nevertheless, we're acutely aware that irresponsible fish farming can have a negative impact on the environment. That's why we choose only reputable suppliers that we know and trust, all of whom are focused on growing healthy salmon with the absolute minimum of impact on the environment and wild fish stocks.
We are also a chain of custody supplier within the GlobalGAP and Aquaculture Stewardship Council standards for sustainable aquaculture practice. Although at present we use only farmed species of fish, we are also certified to the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) chain of custody standard for wild caught fish.
JCS Fish also sets high standards for the environmental management of our own business in Grimsby. We are proud of our Silver accreditation in the national Investors in the Environment (iiE) scheme.
