ECO CERTIFICATIONS. SORTING THROUGH THE MAZE AND CONFUSION

On a daily basis I am asked about fish safety, sustainability and whether or not “I should be eating this or that fish”.  It is a complicated issue. Well meaning organizations have identified harmful harvesting practices, specie shortages and general sustainability issues. But which of these organizations do you believe?

The trustworthy groups that I know of are:    Oceanwise   Seachoice   New England Aquarium    Fish Wise    Monterrey Bay Aquarium     Blue Ocean Institute    David Suzuki Foundation    Ocean Trust    NOEE FishWatch

There are other groups or associations that represent their own particular interests and we should be cautious of their shameless self promotion.
