Fish is a really healthy food - and tinned oily fish is very handy to have in the cupboard. Many people are conscious, though, of the environmental aspects of over-fishing and the prevalence of unsustainable practices. All the canned fish listed here is from Fish4Ever, who have thoroughly investigated this issue and only offer products that they feel are truly sustainable - caught using small boats and packed locally to the catch.
According to Fish4ever, this otherwise well-managed and implemented labelling system has some limitations, and is more appropriate for larger industrial boats, leaving the really small fishermen outside of the certification.
'Sea Action' is therefore a logo used by Fish4Ever to highlight the choices they make and the standards they set. Read more on their Sea Action page.
