Solutions to overfishing
This post is a continuation on Artemis post about overfishing.
Seafood is a healthy diet that you shouldnâ€™t stop eating. Instead, you should take some time to read what kind of fishes you can buy that will make as little damage as possible. This can be hard when the result varies between different regions. But luckily WWF have made 12 different seafood guides for consumers from around the world.
You should also start to buy (or demand) sustainable seafood with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) ecolabel. Please note however that some countries donâ€™t use this symbol but their own label, so again, labels like these may vary between different regions.
Do you like Sushi, Fish & Chips, Seafood Paella or another seafood dish? Probably you do but do you know what kind of problems comes with them? Over at WWF you can learn more on how much destruction and problems your favourite fish dish has contributed to. They will also give you several tips and ideas on how to solve the problems.
