Top Redditch chippies go wild for sustainably sourced fish

Redditch Editorial 10th Jun, 2020   0

TWO Redditch chippies have received the thumbs up from the Marine Stewardship Council – for using fish taken from sustainable sources.

And on World Oceans Day this week staff at the award-winning Golden Carp in Matchborough and Winyates Chippy in Winyates were celebrating secure in the knowledge they are doing their bit to protect a vital resource.

“There you can buy your fish and chips with the ‘We serve MSC cod Haddock’ label, safe in the knowledge that you’re also helping to protect our oceans for future generations,” said Giles Bones of the Marine Stewardship Council.

“That little blue label guarantees the seafood it represents comes from a certified sustainable wild fishery.”

Theo Elinas, who owns both chippies, said: “Being MSC certified I know the fish I purchase from my supplier can give me a chain of custody from ‘sea to plate’, which means the fish is sustainably sourced and responsibly fished with massive consideration to other marine life.”

Certain fish are fast becoming scarce due to widespread and indiscriminate fishing by factory-like trawlers.

The Marine Stewardship Council is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to protecting oceans and safeguarding seafood supplies for the future.
