M&J Seafood introduces sustainable Welsh sea bass

M&J Seafood has announced an exclusive deal to stock Anglesey farmed sea bass, offering customers' top-quality sustainably-sourced bass from this month, combining a popular menu choice with excellent credentials.

The fish are harvested twice a week which means M&J Seafood can consistently offer its customers the freshest and most sustainable farmed sea bass in the UK.

Anglesey Aquaculture share M&J Seafood's goal to maintain the wider environment as well as producing the best quality sustainable farmed fish available. The sea bass has been awarded a ‘1 rating' for sustainability by the Marine Conservation Society, which is only given to the most sustainable seafood.

The Anglesey Aquaculture operation monitors local endangered wildlife, pumps local sea water for its land based farms, and guarantees no interference whatsoever with the seabed. Unlike traditional sea-based caged farming operations, the farm has no interference whatsoever with natural stocks or predator species. A land based recirculation system is used ensuring fish cannot escape into the wild. This sophisticated system means the fish live in the healthiest, safest and most comfortable environment possible.

Kenny Woods, sales manager of Anglesey Aquaculture believes the relationship with M&J Seafood is the perfect fit: "M&J Seafood's commitment to sustainability and ensuring that chefs have access to the most responsibly caught and farmed fish is second to none. We feel this contract is further evidence that we are going about our business and raising our fish in the right way."

M&J Seafood has also agreed an exclusive contract for new MSC Perlas; an imitation black roe which comes from North Atlantic smoked Mackerel.
