So what is sustainable fish all about?

Heard of the  MSC?  They are the official body that makes sure fish is 'grown', cared for and then caught  in a way that makes sure there will be plenty of fish stocks in our oceans for generations to come.  And, believe it or not, we are the UK's largest retailer of  Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified seafood. We've set the bar high and have promised that by 2020, all Sainsbury's fish will be independently certified as sustainable.
