Responsibly sourced fish


At Co-op, we want to make sure we are sourcing our fish from healthy fish stocks and healthy oceans.

Committed to responsibly sourced fish

All fresh farmed Co-op fish is certified to at least one of three independent schemes to measure environmental standards or are farmed organically.

Since 2008, we have ensured we have a rigorous policy to ensure Co-op fish is responsibly sourced and has minimal impact on the marine environment.

Working together with the fishing industry

Co-op joined the Sustainable Seafood Coalition (SSC) in 2011. The coalition brings together major British businesses to make real changes in the seafood industry. All sourcing and labelling of our own-brand fish products meets the SSC codes of conduct.

Co-op work in partnership with the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership to ensure we continue to source the most sustainable seafood options and work together to find solutions to challenges in the marine environment.

You can find out where the fish on your plate actually comes from. We make information about our wild fish sources publically available through the Oceans Disclosure Project website.
