Our scientists have been very busy lately! This month, Seafood Watch recommendations include updated assessments for wild-caught tuna, new assessments for a variety of species farmed in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems, and even more updates for seafood including capelin, swordfish, tilefish and yellow perch.
We've redesigned our app making it easier than ever to get the latest recommendations for seafood and sushi, learn more about the seafood you eat, and locate or share businesses that serve sustainable seafood. Key updates include a new, interactive design that makes it easier to find recommendations and highlights the key factors that determine sustainability; sorting to make the search process quicker; and the ability to locate and report businesses serving ocean-friendly seafood without having to log in. As always, the app is available for iOS and Android devices.
Start the New Year with an ocean-friendly resolution—pledge to purchase only sustainable seafood! Our new consumer guides for January through July 2015 are now available so you can keep your recommendations handy. They're the classic, pocket-sized tool to help you search your favorite seafood and make smart choices for our oceans.
At Seafood Watch, we're aware that human rights abuses are occurring in supply chains around the world, including the seafood industry. Although our scientific assessments don't incorporate social issues, we feel it's important to acknowledge these abuses. We've put together a list of nonprofit organizations working on these issues so that you as consumers can learn about their work and find information to help you make sustainable seafood choices that are right for you.
