Good Catch is a collaborative initiative that aims to help people in foodservice navigate the subject of seafood sustainability. It brings together the work of four organisations: the Marine Conservation Society (MCS), the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), SeaWeb’s Seafood Choices Alliance and Sustain. In addition to this website, Good Catch will direct foodservice professionals to a range of user-friendly materials and activities, including:
The Good Catch Manual - a rough guide to seafood sustainability, covering general issues and tips plus the low-down on around 50 species served in UK restaurants
Fish Flash – a monthly e-bulletin with sustainable seafood developments and news
practical support on sourcing MSC certified seafood and highlighting it on menus
seafood-themed workshops such as:
- a rough guide to seafood sustainability
- engaging front of house staff
- communicating a restaurant’s responsible seafood efforts to customers
- sourcing, serving and labeling MSC certified seafood
a directory of suppliers offering sustainable seafood
visits to fishermen, fish markets and other businesses.
Presented together through Good Catch, these tools and activities create a collection of clear, consistent information and practical support, specifically designed to help restaurants and related businesses improve the sustainability of the seafood they buy, serve and promote.
