First Global Sustainable Seafood Lunch

On September 30, the first global Sustainable Seafood Lunch will be held, all the way from the US to New Zealand. Restaurants to businesses and even airliners will be coming together with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to highlight the availability of sustainable seafood. The event will take place at your local lunchtime all around the globe.

Now available at Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Tesco, and Waitrose the product is supplied by American Albacore Fishing Association (AAFA). They were founded in 2003, along the west coast of the US by seven fishing families. They were dedicated to managing and protecting stocks of tuna for the future. AAFA has succeeded in becoming the first tuna fishery to achieve the highly regarded MSC eco-label, ensuring that it comes from a sustainable source.

In the UK, over one million children will take a sustainable seafood lunch to school. Even Raymond Blanc, Michelin Star chef, has designed his special Sustainable Seafood Lunch menu to be served in his restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Now more than ever, it’s never been easier to make the sustainable choice—be it when you go out to eat, buying fish to cook at home, or picking up a sandwich on the go.

It’s easy to do your bit not just on September 30, but everyday. When you’re out shopping just look for the distinctive blue MSC eco-label on cans of American Albacore Tuna.
