The Sustainable Seafood Coalition (SSC) has launched a new 'labelling code', intended to ensure that consumers are sure about what environmental claims on fish and seafood mean. A new 'sourcing code' accompanies the labelling and ensures that the coalition members source their fish and seafood products responsibly.

By agreeing to the sourcing code, members commit to having good traceability, clarity about sourcing policies, and the implementation of annual risk assessments on fisheries and audits for aquaculture sources.
