M&J Seafood to stop sale of shark

M&J Seafood has announced that it will no longer be supplying shark as of the end of March.

The decision to remove all shark from its frozen and fresh product portfolio comes as part of what the company says are its continued efforts to support sustainable sourcing and champion underutilised species.

The company says that with the support of its suppliers,it is working with the Shark Trust and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to raise awareness amongst the foodservice industry.

The Group Director Fish and Seafood at M&J said “At M&J we believe that catering industry operators and suppliers have an enormous role to play in supporting the sustainable management of our fish stocks.”

Suppliers could really help with conservation efforts by refusing to sell endangered species and taking the initiative to help customers understand the issues and the alternatives open to them.

Of course it will take the catching sector to accept this and not just seek alternative markets or species.
