Nearly one-third of global fish populations are overfished, placing many fisheries at risk for collapse, and over half are already fully-fished. When too many fish are taken out of the ocean, it has a cascading effect on the ecosystem and can lead to loss of other important marine life such as sea turtles and corals, and the fish itself.
In the United States, both wild-caught and farmed fish and shellfish are managed under enforced environmentally-responsible practices which ensures future supplies of seafood are available for our nation and the ecosystem. Choosing sustainable seafood has been made easy by FishWatch, the nation’s database on U.S. managed sustainable seafood, and can make a big impact on the health of the planet.
