Policy Statement1. John Dory's is aware that there is global concern over the over-exploitation of seafood resources and the environmental impacts of fishery and aquaculture activities on marine ecosystems.
As such we commit to transforming our seafood operations to ensure that by 2016, we will only sell seafood products which are certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) for wild-caught products or the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) for farmed products, or equivalent standards or which are categorised as Green by WWF South Africa's Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative (SASSI).
Our overall goal is to increase the availability of sustainable seafood and promote responsible fishing practices and we recognise that a significant proportion of the world's fisheries/aquaculture facilities do not currently meet internationally accepted standards of sustainability. For these operations, rather than simply discontinue sourcing, we would rather use our buying power to provide both an incentive and a path to become sustainable. Thus, by 2016, in order to continue supplying John Dorys, any fisheries/aquaculture facilities whose seafood products do not meet John Dorys' sustainability requirementsmust be engaged in a credible, time-bound improvement project .
John Dorys will thus cease procuring all seafood products not meeting these criteria by the end of 2015. To ensure that all products procured in the future comply with John Dory's sustainability requirements, prior to procuring a product, new products will be assessed against these criteria to ensure that they meet the commitments before they are procured. In cases where products are not currently certified and do not have SASSI assessments, John Dory's will contract WWF to conduct an assessment prior to procuring the product.
