…so let’s make sustainable seafood choices

Overfishing has become commonplace in a world where more and more people need more and more food – and our oceans are showing signs of strain.  A 2006 Dalhousie University study concluded that salt water fish will be essentially gone by 2048 if present fishing patterns continue.

Each of us can help prevent this from happening by choosing only sustainable seafood.  So what’s sustainable?

Seafood Watch, a leading authority on sustainable seafood, has a handy downloadable card listing the best and worst choices, and a smartphone app that keeps you constantly up-to-date.  And David Suzuki’s top ten sustainable seafood picks can be seen here.

Healthy oceans are vital to a healthy planet – so please make sustainable seafood choices.
