Manchester has received our first Sustainable Fish Cities ‘star’ as part of the Sustainable Fish Cities award system!

The campaign to make Manchester a Sustainable Fish City is led by local group Sustainable Fish City Manchester, and is part of a nationwide project to transform the UK’s major cities’ impact on our depleting fish stocks, by greatly reducing the demand for fish from stocks that are overfished.

Manchester Metropolitan University, The Manchester College, and The University of Manchester have joined other organisations in Manchester in a commitment to remove endangered and unsustainably-caught fish from their menu’s, and support the wider campaign. Together, the three institutions have a combined student and staff population of over 100,000, and are a fantastic example of what can be achieved at scale.

Organisers are now calling for more institutions to get involved, including schools, hospitals and work places. If you would like to know more about the Sustainable Fish Cities campaign or award and would like to get involved, click here.
