"Thriving ocean ecosystems are important for the health of the entire planet."
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is noble on many accounts. However, this tribute is dedicated to their Seafood Watch Program. This research and educational program is consistently updated so consumers, chefs and businesses can choose the best sustainable seafood to purchase or order. Thus, saving our ocean habitats and wildlife. What would the world be like if we depleted all the saltwater and freshwater fish because of overfishing and overconsumption?
"Seafood is one of our healthier protein options, but overfishing is desperately harming our oceans."
Enjoy this informational video on why sustainable fishing methods are vital to our lives and our planet’s health.
Call To Action
This is an easy fix. Just become more aware of your selections of seafood before ordering or purchasing your seafood. Learn about where the fish are from and the fishing techniques used. The Monterey Bay Aquarium offers recommendations on seafood ‘Best Choice,’ ‘Good Alternative,’ or ‘Avoid.’ They offer two helpful guides to educate us:
1) Refer to the Seafood Watch Application (download on iPhone or Android)
2) Carry a Seafood Watch Pocket Guide (easily downloaded and printed)
