Captain's nets MSC certification



A Hertfordshire fish and chip shop, which later this week is competing in the National Fish & Chip Awards, has achieved Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification.

 
Captain’s Fish & Chips in Hoddesdon can now use the MSC blue fish ecolabel on its cod and haddock, assuring customers that the fish sold has been responsibly caught using sustainable methods. It also means it can be traced back to the fishermen who caught it.
  
Captain’s, which will be presenting to a panel of judges on Wednesday as it vies for the title of UK’s Independent Fish & Chip Takeaway, has been the go-to fish and chip shop in Hoddesdon for 18 years.

Owner Tony Forgione and his brothers are the third generation of their family to have been in the fish and chip business. He comments: “I am over the moon to be awarded MSC certification for Captain’s Fish & Chips as I am a strong believer in sustainability and looking after our amazing world as we are only leaseholders and not freeholders.
 
“We make sure we educate our customers into knowing that by choosing the blue fish ecolabel they are helping to keep our waters full and plentiful for future generations to enjoy sustainable fish. Long live fish and chips!”


George Clark, senior commercial manager at the MSC, said: “It’s such a huge achievement for Captain’s in getting MSC certified. If there’s no fish then there’s no fish and chips, and by choosing the blue fish ecolabel, Captain’s are supporting the future of our oceans and the future of our nation’s favourite takeaway.”
