Seafood watch card

Even as an individual, one can make a significant contribution to the conservation of our oceans.
A few years ago, Monterey Bay Aquarium came up with the idea of producing a Seafood Watch Card. This wallet-size card carries information on all seafood items that we as consumers regularly purchase in stores and restaurants. It offers information around the most environmentally-friendly.

The objective is to allow consumers to make informed decisions about the sustainability of the seafood they're eating.

Different species of fish and seafood are more abundant in different parts of the world. Below, you will 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. Please feel free to pass this information on to your friends and family. Follow the links below.
