Sustainable aquaculture is a key priority for BigFish Brand
We source our fish from a small number of suppliers based primarily in Scotland and Norway. They are all closely focused on the efficient production of farmed fish with minimum impact on the environment and wild fish stocks. Our Scottish suppliers are members of the Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) and so required to participate in the Code of Good Practice for Scottish Finfish Aquaculture.
We are also a certified supplier to the GlobalGAP and Aquaculture Stewardship Council standards for sustainable aquaculture practice. Although at present we use only farmed species of fish, we are also a certified supplier to the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) standard for wild caught fish.
“With the global population and demand for food continuing to grow, aquaculture can play an important role in meeting seafood demand whilst reducing the pressure on wild fish stocks. It's also a more efficient way to grow protein-rich food than the farming of land animals.”
