Which seafood is most sustainable?

As a result of environmental issues like pollution, global warming, and overfishing, marine populations have declined significantly over the past few decades. To raise awareness of these problems, the team at Ocean Treasure prepared a list of sustainable seafood to eat, with the aim of protecting these vulnerable and stressed ecosystems.

Farmed Fisheries

While farmed fish are often considered a more sustainable option than wild-caught fish due to their controlled production environment and less resource-intensive harvest, there have been concerns regarding aquaculture practices in the past. Overcrowding, reliance on wild fish for feed, poor quality fish, and environmental devastation were some of the negative perceptions surrounding aquaculture. 

However, in recent years, complex models have been developed to help site fish pens in a way that minimizes environmental impact. These models take into account factors such as currents, temperatures, and weather patterns to ensure that the farming process is environmentally responsible. As a result, modern aquaculture practices can be more sustainable and environmentally friendly especially for:

Wild Caught Seafood Products

Seafood is a vital food source for many people worldwide, but overfishing has led to concerns about the sustainability of fish populations and their impact on marine ecosystems. Around half of the world’s seafood comes from naturally occurring fish populations, which support millions of people as producers and consumers and contribute to the health of the planet. However, more than 85% of the world’s fisheries are beyond their biological limits, and pollution, development, and climate change have further degraded the underwater environment.

To address these concerns, organizations like the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) monitor wild fish stocks to ensure sustainable fishing practices. By catching only sustainable fish speciesfisheries can avoid contributing to overfishing and give populations the opportunity to replenish themselves, allowing wild fish to be enjoyed by future generations.
