The organizers of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London have committed to only serving seafood that’s shown to be sustianable.
When you’re talking about 82,000 metric tons (or
180 779 055 pounds) that’s quite an Olympic feat!
The organizers will be souring from Marine Stewardship Council certified fisheries and excluding fish found on the Marine Conservation Society’s avoid list (the Marine Conservation Society is a UK marine conservation non-profit that ranks seafood).
