Bournemouth and Poole named ‘first sustainable fish city’

Sustain, the alliance for better food and farming, has awarded the title to Bournemouth and Poole, which have a food partnership, after organisations including workplaces, schools, universities, hospitals, restaurants and public sector organisations in the two towns pledged that any fish served in meals would be from sustainable sources.

The move follows work by the Sustainable Fish Cities campaign to work with fish-serving businesses and take endangered and unsustainably caught fish off menus.
