At Seafood Ecosse we are committed to investing in long term sustainability of our seas. We know that sustainability is a journey, and we are committed to providing a reliable source of supply.
The Scottish seafood Association (SSA) was formed in 2011 in response to a growing need for a national body to represent the whole of Scotland’s seafood, processing, and trading sectors Scotland has a global reputation for the quality and reputation for the quality and range the North Sea has to offer. SSA members are recognised as being among the world’s leading suppliers and processors of quality seafood products to regional, national, and global markets. We are proud to be a member of the organisation to promote Scottish product and quality.
As we are heavily involved with Scallop fishing boats, we currently hold seats within the Scallop Sustainability Fund and contribute to this yearly for the science and management processes that are important to sustainable fishing.
We are investors of the Mr Goodfish Campaign.
Mr.Goodfish is a campaign on the sustainable consumption of seafood products. The main objective of Mr Goodfish is to raise the awareness of both the entire fishing industry and consumers on this situation and to offer simple and positive solutions. If we all followed Mr.Goodfish’s advice and we could save 18 000 tons of threatened species. It’s only with a joint effort from the fish industry and the consumers that the economy of fishery will be saved, and we’ll be able to continue consuming sea products in the future.
