worry about what fish we eat?
to see more fish in the ocean? Sustainable seafood is caught
using methods that support the long term supply of the species
and that don't harm the environment.
FACTORS THAT AFFECT SUSTAINABILITY
Fish population - is it healthy?
By-catch - are animals being caught unintentionally?
Pollution - is any being created?
Habitats - are they being preserved?
we continually choose fish that are not being sustained, there
won't be any left to catch, eat, or see in the ocean!
