Compass Group has decided to follow the advice of the Marine Conservation Society. Sixty-nine species have been removed from menus at thousands of restaurants across the UK and Ireland to protect threatened stock.

The decision has an impact on 6500 outlets and includes a ban on 4 varieties of Skate, 5 Tunas and two types of Plaice.

According to The Guardian, the move means that Atlantic cod from all but a few fisheries will be off the menu while Pacific cod certified by the MSC will stay on it. Alaskan pollock, Pacific salmon also from Alaska, and Dover sole from the Hastings fishery are options that remain.
