Monterrey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program creates recommendations for seafood items based on market information collected from retailers and restaurants in the U.S. about the items they sell. The Seafood Watch research team gathers information about the most popular seafood items, imported and domestic, and evaluates it using sustainability criteria. For each item, a report is completed and circulated to outside experts who review and critique our findings. At the conclusion of this process, a final seafood report and recommendations are completed and posted on their website, seafoodwatch.org.
Now there’s an app for Seafood Watch recommendations, making it easy to choose sustainable seafood at your favorite restaurant or while shopping. It’s like the Seafood Watch Pocket Guide, only better.
At a time when the world’s oceans are severely overfished, here’s an easy way to make a difference.
