For seafood eaters, finding sustainable seafood with a low toxicity rating can be a challenge. With an estimated 90% of the world’s fisheries now fully exploited, over-exploited or fully collapsed it is more important than ever to ensure that the fish we eat is fished and/or farmed sustainably.
This is where Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch comes in.
Aside from acting as a watchdog on sustainable fishing and ocean management and conducting important scientific research on the state of our oceans, Seafood Watch has developed a great app to help consumers find up-to-date information on ocean-friendly fish and sushi.
You can access Seafood Watch’s in-depth reports through the app as well as search for restaurants serving sustainable seafood near you.
We hope you’ll try it!
