For years, the world's supply of fish has been endangered. As concern over sustainable fishing practices have increased, McDonald's has jumped on the eco-friendly bandwagon. The company will now offer certified sustainable wild-caught Alaskan pollock.
The fish is already used in the Fillet-O-Fish sandwichand will be featured in the upcoming Fish McBites. McDonald's is the first national restaurant chain to obtain the Marine Stewardship Council's blue ecolabel (pictured above).
