This sub-metric is used to evaluate the metric : ""5.2 Sustainable fishing""
With this metric we aim to publicise and compare the policies adopted by the main distributors in Spain regarding the responsible purchasing and marketing of their fish and aquaculture products and their efforts in certification, labelling, legislative compliance, non-commercialisation of illegal fishing, no conflicting fish and the promotion of sustainable fishing.

We will "assign a" "YES" "to this question if:

In the case of frozen fish, we consider only the own brand.
Among the main certifications and reference standards in sustainable fishing are:

Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), Naturland, Bioland, BAP Best Aquaculture Practice, social and environmental sustainability label �Friends of the Sea�, principles of the ISSF (International Seafood Sustainability Foundation), Fishing Tuna Responsible APR of Aenor Confort, ISO 195006 Sustainable fishing,, Dolphin Safe, Fad-free, GLOBALG.AP and organic farming of the
EU.

We will assign a "NO" if:

- The company does not publish its proportion of certified sustainable fish or it is less than 50%
