Can I buy sustainable Cod online?

It comes as a surprise to many that only 5% of the supply of UK Atlantic Cod is caught in UK's coastal waters of the North Sea. The majority is being supplied from Russian, Norwegian and Icelandic waters of the North Atlantic.

Due to the responsible management of fisheries in these waters coupled with favourable environmental conditions, food scientists in Russia, Norway and Iceland are reporting that Cod stocks in the Arctic waters of the North Atlantic are bigger than they have been for decades. The spawning biomass in Russia and Norway is the largest it has been since the second world war. At the same time the Haddock stock in Norwegian and Russian waters has more than trippled in size during the past decade.

As a result of the successful fisheries management in the North Atlanticscientists have now recommended that fishermen are allowed to catch more than one million metric tonnes of Atlantic Cod for the first time this century. According to the Marine Conservation Society (MSC) advisory list, Barents Sea Cod, which makes up the largest part of the overall supply, is placed in the Green category. It is safe for customers to buy and eat Atlantic Cod from this harvesting area.

You can rest assured that Super Chef only purchase Cod from companies who have the full MSC Chain of Accreditation.
