Direct Seafoods: We're selling sustainable North Sea haddock

MCS' rating drop of certain haddock stocks 'caused a certain amount of confusion as to the sustainability of Haddock in general,' says Direct Seafoods.

After haddock from the North Sea and the west of Scotland was taken off the Marine Conservation Society's (MCS') sustainable "fish to eat" list due to falling stock numbers, Direct Seafoods said it hopes to clear confusions and "continue to support Scottish fishermen by sourcing MSC Scottish haddock for customers who request it."

The MCS update "caused a certain amount of confusion as to the sustainability of Haddock in general," said Direct Seafoods Sustainability & Epicurean Director Laky Zervudachi.

"The position for Direct Seafoods however remains that the vast majority  of the haddock sourced and supplied  by Direct Seafood come from MSC certified fisheries in Iceland and Norway that remain on the MCS fish to eat list and are rated 2 Green by the MCS, the small amount not from there comes from various small fisheries around the country.
