Choosing Sustainable Seafood
Avoid seafood caught using harmful methods such as bottom trawling.
A recent study by the conservation group Oceana found that approximately 1 in 3 fish sold in the U.S. is mislabeled.
Globally, 1 in 5 fish are caught illegally, resulting in $23.5 billion dollars in economic losses per year.
Species lower on the marine food chain generally reproduce much faster and in larger numbers than top marine predators like tuna, swordfish, and sharks that are chronically overfished.

Here are some species

to consider next time you

are purchasing seafood:

Is this wild-caught or farm raised?
Do you know how or where this was caught?
Limiting seafood consumption to only once or twice a week (especially if you don’t live near the ocean) helps ensure there will be enough sustainable seafood for generations to come.
When buying seafood, refer to a pocket guide or sustainable seafood smartphone app to support “Best Choice” fisheries.
