Sustainable Seafood

The Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch® program helps consumers choose seafood that's caught or farmed in ways that support healthy oceans, now and for future generations. The choices we make as consumers drive the seafood marketplace. Your purchasing power can make a difference by supporting those fisheries and fish farms that are better for the environment, while at the same time relieving pressure on other fish species that are not doing as well. With more than 75 percent of the world's fisheries either fully fished or overfished, these issues are more important than ever (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). By using the seafood guide for your region, you're making choices based on the best available information and supporting environmentally friendly fisheries and aquaculture operations.
