Why Choose Sustainable Seafood?

People once thought that ocean fisheries could never be exhausted, but they were wrong. Increased demand and destructive fishing practices have damaged the health of the oceans.

Today, nearly 70% of the world's fisheries are either fully fished or over fished. Approximately 30 million tons of fish, sharks, marine mammals, sea turtles and seabirds die each year as by-catch (animals caught accidentally and discarded). We can all make a difference and change the future of the ocean!
