Overfishing is a major global problem that is caused, quite simply, by fishing at rates too high for species to replace themselves. More than 30% of the world’s fisheries have been pushed beyond their biological limits!
To maintain fish stocks long-term, Lidl have committed to sourcing 100% fish and seafood products from independently certified sustainable fisheries by the end of 2019 (MSC or recognised Irish FIP's for wild caught fish and ASC or GLOBAL G.A.P. Aquaculture Standard for farmed fish).
100% of Lidl’s canned tuna is already responsibly sourced using either ‘pole and line’ fishing method; Fish Aggregation Devise (FAD)-free fishing practices or is MSC certified. Already 80% of wild caught chilled and frozen fish is certified to the MSC standard.
