What can you do?
In order to combat unsustainable aquaculture, consumers need to increase awareness of where their fish and shellfish come from! Purchasing food that is clearly labelled helps to promote sustainability.
How do you know if it’s sustainable?
The Monterey Bay Aquarium also provides several other useful resources such as consumer guides for fish types, apps that remind you which species are threatened, and more!
Local Impact – Ann Arbor
Purchasing fish and shellfish at local markets where sellers know the direct source of their product helps to promote sustainable aquaculture. These practices allow consumers to have a direct impact on the market and allows the promotion of better industry.
