What is a Sustainable Fish? This is a Sustainable Fish
For thousands of years humans have depended on the oceans for food and survival. But in the last five decades the health of our oceans has changed dramatically. Marine life around the globe is now in trouble from pollution, habitat damage, and overfishing.
In the past five decades, overfishing and other harmful practices have driven many fish populations to levels that are difficult to restore. Simply put, we’re removing fish from the ocean faster than they can reproduce. Our seafood choices have the power to make this situation worse, or improve it.
Our ocean seems vast, but the bounty beneath the sapphire surface has limits. Around the globe, fisheries are in trouble. Will our appetite for seafood leave behind an empty ocean? Can the "blue revolution" of aquaculture lead the way to a sustainable future?
This 15-minute film explores the last wild hunt on our planet-our quest for seafood.
Consumers can also download the free Seafood Watch mobile app for up-to-date recommendations on where to find ocean-friendly seafood.
