80% of global seafood consumers agree that seafood needs to be protected for future generations.
Most wild fisheries are fully fished or overfished. Stocks of large fish, such as tuna and swordfish, have declined by 90% since 1950. And many aquaculture, or seafood farming, operations also negatively impact coasts and oceans. But consumer awareness, responsible purchasing behaviors, and demand for sustainably sourced seafood is on the rise. By lessening seafood consumption, substituting different seafoods, and supporting sustainable we help remove pressures on overfished and depleted species. Join the global movement by ensuring your own seafood choices are sustainable.
It’s simple. Start here.
1. Limit your seafood consumption.
2. Familiarize yourself with information about a couple types of seafoods you eat frequently, seek out sustainable suppliers in your area, and rely on local and domestic sources as much as possible.
3. Support and purchase seafood from a Community-Supported Fishery (CSF).
5. Expand your horizons and substitute in different types of seafoods that are healthy and sustainable.
