The Sustainable Seafood Movement is an initiative born as a result of overexploited and destroyed marine ecosystems throughout the world.  Awareness campaigns are vital and should focus on educating people and encouraging them to purchase sustainable seafood products that consider the conservation of marine species. 

Seafood buyers are increasingly searching for ways to choose only products that are sourced from well-managed capture fisheries or aquaculture production facilities and to understand and reduce the environmental risks related to their seafood purchasing choices.

Our sustainable seafood news page will answer all your seafood questions!  

We regularly update this page to cover all aspects of seafood news, including up to date information about the seafood trade and all the latest insights from the seafood industry.
