On Sunday the latest leg of African Voices begins, as three delegates from West African fishing communities arrive in London to start a tour of the UK, speaking out on how the invasion of industrial-sized EU fleets are threatening their livelihoods, food security and marine ecosystems.

Brilliant news! Morrisons has announced a new policy on tinned tuna, committing to stop sourcing fish caught via destructive fishing methods: this means that now all major UK supermarkets have now changed their policy towards being more sustainable. This leaves John West as the last major supplier left that still needs to change its tuna.

John West hasn't shifted on tinned tuna, neither has Morrisons. At least, not yet...

In 2006, we said Morrisons was the worst fish retailer. Now its failing on tinned tuna, just like John West

We had huge success earlier this month getting both Princes and Asda to clean up their tinned tuna. But the battle against the butchering of our oceans isn’t over: John West and Morrisons are still not off the hook (ahem).
