Mars Petcare's Sheba brand announced that it will offer responsibly sourced fish entrées for cats in the US as part of Mars Petcare's global commitment to use only sustainably sourced fish by 2020.
Following the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program sourcing recommendations, Sheba Entrées will use only farmed or wild-caught fish from environmentally responsible sources. The brand currently offers five varieties of responsibly sourced whitefish, tuna and seafood options, but by the end of 2013, all of the recipes will meet Seafood Watch recommendations.
In March 2010, the global petcare segment of Mars made a commitment to use only sustainably sourced fish by 2020. As global fish stocks continue to decline, the company aims to achieve the following milestones across its entire pet care portfolio by 2020:
The top 10 petfood manufacturers continue to feel the effects of the global economic meltdown

The maker of raw and holistic diets seeks to help transform pets through its products, philosophy, education and research
The lowly pea appears to be an effective ingredient for the next generation of dog and cat diets
Tomato pomace has the potential to provide additional nutrition and health benefits
With the availability of quality ingredients declining, perhaps we need to explore this category
The company builds on its boutique business with three new lines for pet stores, including baked dog food and treats
Aunt Jeni's Home Made promotes the health and longevity of pets with their natural and raw lines of products
Why these companies lead the global petfood industry in
sales, growth and innovation
The question is whether they provide additional benefit to the dog or cat
It's the finishing touch that can meet both owner and pet needs.
What is this quiet, unassuming ingredient, and should it be there?
