WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD: A RESPONSIBLE CONSUMER GUIDE

What is Sustainable Seafood?

The conservation of aquatic fauna and flora is seriously affected by external factors such as the acidification of the oceans or the global increase in water temperature. In addition, 

there is overexploitation of marine species which is a threat to ocean life. 

So, as a consumer, what can you do to help conserve marine species? In today’s article, we show you a guide on how to consume fish sustainably.

Guide to consume fish in a responsible way

If you eat fish, bet on sustainable fish and pressure governments to support sustainable fishing as a future for the oceans and fishing communities. If you eat fish, do it responsibly! Let’s see the guide!

Reduce your consumption of fish and when you buy it, choose it well!!

It’s important that you reduce your consumption of fish and when you buy it, always choose fish in season, from sustainable arts, and as close as possible! It will be tastier and much more sustainable, it will help to improve the overexploitation situation.

Look at the label

Correct labeling gives all the necessary information and allows you to choose the most sustainable fish. With the current EU regulation on fresh and frozen fish it should be indicated, among others:

  • Fishing method: Choose the most selective ones such as the skewer, the trammel, the traps, the non-industrial longline, the rod, etc.
  • Catching area: Sometimes the fish is unloaded in nearby ports but comes from far away. Check that it has been captured the closer the better.

Demand better quality from supermarkets

You have to require supermarkets to develop a policy for the sustainable purchase of fish products. In addition, you should demand fisheries products that are sustainable, that support fishing communities, and which are well labeled with complete information about their origin.

Learn about the journey of tuna from the sea to the plate

Tuna is one of the most consumed fish and at the same time the most vulnerable. In your supermarket, look for products that indicate that it has been caught at an angle and as close as possible.

Penalize unsustainable fishing

If the labeling is unclear and the fishmonger lacks information about the origin of the fish, don’t buy it. The greatest harm we can do if we eat fish is precisely to consume if we have doubts about the origin and sustainability of the fish.

Try to avoid intensively farmed fish

Aquaculture isn’t the solution to overfishing! About a third of the world’s fisheries go into the manufacture of fishmeal to feed captive breeding. 

It also has other social and environmental impacts such as water pollution, the introduction of invasive species, and the occupation of coastal and marine areas to the detriment of their conservation and other activities such as traditional fishing. 

Opt for the more traditional aquaculture (such as shellfish) or herbivorous and indigenous species.

Bet on local consumption

Consuming products that have been obtained in local or nearby areas guarantees more sustainable fishing, in addition to a lower level of CO2 pollution by reducing transport routes.a

Consuming seasonal fish

More generically, being informed and knowing which products are at the time of capture helps the consumer to choose the most sustainable –and tasty- option at each time of the year depending on their geographical area.
