Good Fish suppliers
The Good Fish Foundation is always looking for collaborations with a variety of fish suppliers that fit in our horeca programme. In The Netherlands, various suppliers and wholesales associate themselves with sustainability. However, this does not mean their entire stock is sustainable. In 2019, research bureau Pointer concluded that wholesales score alot worse in terms of sustainability in comparison with supermarkets. Only 5% of the Bidfood products are certified for example. The majority of the fish sold at Makro (19%), Hanos (20%) and Sligro (28%) are also not certified.
For customers of wholesales and fish suppliers, it may be difficult to see what items are sustainable. Analyzing whether a product is ASC- or MSC-certified is the best way to do so, but these fish products are underrepresented at wholesales. Apart from that, not all fish species have a certification, forcing you to follow the information the wholesale or fish supplier gives you.
For that reason, you will find a list of all the wholesales and fish suppliers that currently sell sustainably caught or responsibly farmed fish products.
The products EcoSeafood sells are either MSC-, ASC- or BIO-certified, making sure that the fish you buy is actually sustainable. For more information, visit EcoSeafoods’ website.
Jan van As/ Vis & Seizoen
The Vis & Seizoen Foundation, created by fish mongler Jan van As, focuses on a more sustainable fish consumption. They primarily focus on sustainable fish, caught in the proper season. The rule for consumption is rather simple: Don’t eat a fish during it’s breed period.
The Vis & Seizoen Foundation created a 100% fish in the right season department, based on multiple criteria: The right season, a sustainable fishing technique, a healthy population and good quality. The products are either MSC- or ASC-certified or are approved by the Good Fish Foundation. Visit their website for more information.
