ANOTHER FISH FIGHT VICTORY
Tuesday March 15th, 2011
Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall and Greenpeace have scored another major victory with their ‘Fish Fight’ campaign. Tinned seafood giants Princes have agreed to clean up its tinned tuna act and have pledged to stop using indiscriminate fishing methods by 2014. By then all the tuna they sell will be caught by pole, line or Fad- free purse seine nets.
This brings the company in line with Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose. Asda have also announced a commitment to follow Princes example and stop using selling fish caught using the worst ‘by-catch’ methods thus helping to prevent the unnecessary ravaging of shark, dolphin and turtle populations.
The next target for the Fish Fight is John West who are a very close second to Princes in the tinned fish market place. If you want to lend your voice to the campaign simply go to www.greenpeace.org.uk/fishfight. It takes a couple of minutes to help make a big difference.
