Many people think that as an individual one cannot make a difference in terms of contributing to the conservation of our Oceans.
Quite a few years ago Monterey Bay Aquarium came up with the idea of producing a Seafood Watch Card.
The primary idea behind this is that this wallet size info card carries information on all choices of seafood that we as consumers can purchase in stores, markets etc as well as in restaurants.
What is really fantastic about this initiative is that it does not tell you not to eat seafood, but rather it gives advice on how to proceed with the most environmentally safe items of choice.
It also gives information on what is not environmentally friendly to eat. So, the choice is yours!
Different species of fish and seafood are available in different parts of the world.
We have a managed to find links to seafood watch cards that are available for use in different parts of the USA; Canada; The United Kingdom and South Africa.
This is one way that we as individuals can make a difference, and you can pass this information onto your friends and family too... just follow the links below.
