Whitby Seafoods Appoint Fisheries Improvement Manager

L-R: Barry Harland, Head of Responsible Business, Giles Bartlett & Daniel Whittle, Managing Director of Whitby Seafoods

Yorkshire seafood obsessives, Whitby Seafoods, have appointed Giles Bartlett as their Fisheries Improvement Manager.

Giles joins the seafood company at an exciting time as they continue to make bloomin’ special seafood more accessible to everyone, and continue with their mission of pioneering a seafood revolution.

Having been a part of the fishing and seafood industries for a number of years, this role will use his nephrops fisheries experience gained throughout his career, including his time with WWF. His main responsibility will be to engage with the UK and Irish seafood suppliers to deliver sustainable and ethical improvements to the fisheries that Whitby Seafoods work with.

Commenting on his new role, Giles said: “ The challenge and opportunity for me in the role is to improve the performance of the Nephrops fisheries that are so vital to us, including achieving MSC certification! Our customers are passionate about the iconic Whitby scampi – a significant part of this role is about addressing some sustainability and ethical challenges, either within the current management system or the system post Brexit – so that the supply is secured into the future and that we can be even more proud of how our scampi is produced.”

Barry Harland, Head of Responsible Business at Whitby Seafoods said: “This is a very important appointment for Whitby Seafoods as we strengthen our position as a leading UK Seafood brand.  We understand that our influence runs deep into the supply chain and we are proud to champion positive change within the industry.  This appointment will help us improve collaboration with our supply partners working towards our common goals.”
