Marks & Spencer supports the development of the ASC

July 8, 2010

Marks & Spencer, one of the United Kingdom’s leading retailers, is participating in the Aquaculture Dialogues and several of the Dialogues’ technical working groups. It also is reviewing and/or commenting on the draft standards for salmon, shrimp and trout.

“The standard setting process for these species is going further than ever before in reaching out through a transparent, multi-stakeholder approach,” said Richard Luney, the wild fish and aquaculture manager for Marks & Spencer. Also, Luney said, “We support the development of the ASC and the ASC standards and, following full agreement on the detail of the relevant standards, we will work with WWF and the ASC to ensure that, by 2015, our company sources all of its farmed seafood from the most sustainable sources available.”
