We knew the issue with sustainable seafood was dire, but we hadn't realized the extent that in our lifetime we could see the complete depletion of all wild seafood from the planet in less than 50 years!
Check out this extremely alarming BBC News report:
For what you can do right now, please visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Program:
This is an excellent resource for buying sustainably caught seafood, as well as fish that are lower in Mercury and healthier for you and your family to cook and eat.
We think that if more and more people use this information to grocery shop and order in restaurants, that perhaps we can all help to be a part of the solution in keeping fish stocks alive and bountiful for generations to come.
Thank you for your urgent attention and participation with this!
Peace, Love and a Healthy Planet!
