Responsible sourcing recommendations for the Spanish seafood supply chain

There is increasing interest in the Spanish seafood supply chain for fisheries and aquaculture to be more environmentally and socially sustainable.

For businesses to ensure more sustainable seafood is part of their strategic planning and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), they must make specific sourcing policy commitments and set defined, time-bound and measurable indicators.

This policy must be public and easily accessible. In addition, it must include all seafood from both wild and farmed sources: including fresh, frozen, canned or pre-processed.

A successful responsible sourcing policy will not only align with these recommendations, but will also include a process for progressive and continuous improvement over time.
