WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD?
The sustainable seafood movement has gained momentum over the past few years as people have become more aware of the environmentally-destructive consequenses we face due to overfishing and unethical farming operations.
Sustainable seafood is seafood sourced from either farmed or wild caught industries that have been assesed to ensure that their population can be maintained or improved in the future without jeopardising the ecosystems it was acquired from.
The world has depended on fish products for thousands of years, and as our population increases, so does the pressure on the oceans delicate ecosystems. Some deep-sea fish are slow growing and reproduce late in life, and are vulnerable to over-fishing. Their populations need time to recover.
Sustainable seafood is not only important to preserve what we have in our oceans and rivers, but also to improve and preserve the quality of life for future generations.
