  From Intrafish News on March 30, British retailer Waitrose exclusively launched MSC certified yellowfin tuna and albacore tuna, which were first listed on the British market.

  The retailer promised that by 2025, it will only purchase wild-caught seafood products certified by a third party.
   Together with the supplier New England Seafood International, the retailer has spent more than 10 years working with suppliers, governments and NGOs to bring these tuna products to the market, with the goal of Let all stores provide certified products by the middle of 2022.
   Waitrose Aquaculture and Fisheries Manager Andy Boulton said that sustainably sourcing tuna has always been a challenge. Yellowfin tuna is very popular among our customers and it is really exciting to be able to provide MSC certified products.
