Selfridges' Project Ocean is taking a stand for marine conservation for a third year running and for 2013, we’re challenging the world to think differently about sharks. As part of our ongoing retail activism campaign, Selfridges is setting out to rehabilitate the image of sharks for the good of the planet because healthy shark populations are a sign of a healthy ocean. Selfridges' Beauty Department has become 100% free of all shark by-products to help the Save Our Sharks campaign and generate awareness for the plight of our oceans.

Research suggests that unless we change the way we fish and the seafood we choose to eat, global stocks will be fully exploited within the next generation. You can help make a difference by using this guide when choosing seafood at the fish counter or from restaurant menus.

How to use this guide

Fish to eat

Are from well managed, sustainable stocks or farms, or are not currently affected by demand or fishing methods. We sell many of them when available!

Fish to avoid

Are from unsustainable, over fished, highly vulnerable or poorly managed fisheries or farming systems. Or they may have high levels of by-catch – that’s fish caught unintentionally whilst trying to catch other fish, and then thrown back dead. We don’t sell them – but we recommend an alternative whenever we can!

Selfridges recommends

The alternatives to fish to avoid we recommend for similar taste and texture.
