Eat a variety of seafood to support healthy oceans

Your Challenge

challenge action

Swap your favourite fish with other responsibly produced seafood one day a week for a month

Why you're doing this

challenge issue

Overfishing and climate change affects the whole marine ecosystem, prevents targeted fish stocks from recovering and impacts the 800 million people globally who depend on them for food and income. ASC and MSC certified farms and fisheries have higher environmental standards and are traceable. But even the best managed sources cannot satisfy unlimited increase in demand.

How you'll make a difference

challenge solution

By diversifying your seafood choices you can protect people, nature and climate. Choosing alternative species from well managed sources, like Scottish farmed mussels, can reduce pressure on more popular species. How about trying Moroccan sardines caught by purse seine? This fishing method requires less fuel and so has a smaller carbon footprint!
