Change for Fish – putting sustainability at the centre of the table!

Fish – a delicious and versatile inclusion on any restaurant menu, giving chefs the opportunity to get creative with this tasty, healthy choice. But there are serious impacts and threats to seafood supplies because of overfishing and habitat destruction. And if those of us who serve up fish to the public don’t act now – there could be some big gaps on the menu between the meat and vegetarian options.


Many fish populations have declined dramatically in recent decades and are struggling to recover. With almost 90 per cent of world fish stocks fully or over exploited from fishing, plus pressure from climate change and pollution, stocks need a helping hand to ensure chefs can serve up fish suppers for generations to come.
