With fish delivered to the restaurant two or three times every week, Bizzie Lizzie's are keen to place an emphasis on sustainable fishing as approved by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC):

"We only go to suppliers who have the MSC stamp of approval... They can do DNA testing on the fish to tell you where it was fished from and if that's not on the traceability list then there's a problem!"
