New report this week on the effects of industrial fishing
Ian Hagg, head of CSR at the Findus Group (parent of Young's Seafood) says, "We welcome these latest research findings as a valuable lesson in understanding just how abundant the oceans can be and how important is their contribution to feeding a growing world population. We are proud of the work our business has done in leading a culture of change and improvement in the seafood industry and welcome recent advances in introducing more precautionary management systems in UK, EU and other major fisheries around the world, reports www.megafishnet.com with reference to Young's.
"For those concerned about the status of the world's fisheries, we offer the reassurance of products such as our Young's brand, the fish for which is sourced responsibly under the rigorous criteria of our Fish for Life programme.
"We also made a significant step in supporting the global drive towards independent sustainability certification when we announced last month our ambition to source all wild capture seafood for our retail brands from MSC certified fisheries by 2012."
