Last week, UK and EU fisheries ministers agreed to increase the total allowable catch (TAC) of North Sea and English Channel Herring by 20%. to a total of 427,628 tons.
This encouraging outcome proves that the partnership between careful fisheries management and responsible harvest strategies is leading to sustainable and improving herring stocks to support global food security.
Consumers can continue to buy and eat highly nutritious, healthy herring with confidence. We will continue our work to deliver sustainably sourced herring to customers throughout the world.
