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 only work with reputable suppliers, ones we know and trust who are focused on growing healthy salmon with the absolute minimum impact on the environment and wild fish stocks.

Most of our fish comes from Scotland, where we require our suppliers to be members of the Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) and to observe its detailed Code of Good Practice.

We are also a chain of custody supplier within the GlobalG.A.P. (GGN) 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.  We were also the first company in the UK to commit to sourcing GGN-certified salmon for our BigFish brand.

We also set high standards for the environmental management of our own business in Grimsby and are proud to have Silver accreditation in the national Investors in the Environment (iiE) scheme.
