Sustainable aquaculture is a key priority for BigFish.
We source our fish direct from a small number of suppliers, primarily in Scotland. We insist on high standards and make sure our they are focused on the efficient production of farmed salmon and sea trout with the absolute minimum impact on the environment and wild fish stocks. All 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 continuing to grow, aquaculture has important role to play in meeting demand for seafood whilst reducing the pressure on wild fish stocks. It also has a lower carbon impact than the farming of land animals.”
