More of What's New
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.
Seafood Watch is kicking off the New Year with numerous new and updated recommendations that include cod, eel, flounder, herring, lingcod, octopus, perch, plaice, rockfish, sablefish, scad, seabream, skate, sole, thornyhead and turbot. We're particularly excited about our new scientific assessment for Alaska and British Columbia groundfish that upgrades several commercially important species.
We're excited to bring you more "Best Choice" recommendations for groundfish! Caught by the Fort Bragg Groundfish Association, the Half Moon Bay Groundfish Marketing Association and the Central California Seafood Marketing Association, these recommendations include:
- NEW Chilipepper rockfish
- NEW Dover sole
- NEW English sole
- NEW Pacific sanddab
- NEW Petrale sole
- NEW Sablefish
- NEW Thornyhead rockfish
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.
