Park Hyatt Tokyo brings MSC certified sustainable bluefin tuna to its menus

Park Hyatt Tokyo has taken another step in the direction of sustainability, after its partner and supplier, Usufuku Honten, received the world’s first MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certification for their longline bluefin tuna fishery.

In August of this year, Usufuku Honten became the first company to receive MSC Certification for sustainable fisheries regarding their bluefin tuna fishing practices. Sourcing their bluefin tuna responsibly, they continue to keep the amount caught within the allowable catch to prevent overfishing.

In August 2014, Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced a global initiative to strive toward a more sustainable future by procuring responsibly sourced seafood at their hotels, with a preference for seafood from MSC and ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) certified fisheries and farms. Knowing this, Ususfuku Honten chose Park Hyatt Tokyo to highlight sustainable tuna.
