SeafoodWATCH: Making Better Seafood Choices for a Healthy Ocean

Posted on January 24, 2020 at 8:20 AM by Natalie Nebilak


Seafood Sustainability

Our oceans our integral to the health of our planet. It supplies us with food and helps regulate our climate. And in Ventura, the mighty Pacific provides us with recreation and renewal. Just like on terra firma, the resources of the oceans are not boundless. We live in an environment with finite resources, and when we exploit those resources we are not only causing harm to ourselves and future generations, but to the millions and billions of plants and animals that also depend on these resources for survival. 

Enter SeafoodWATCH

SeafoodWATCH was developed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium to help consumers and businesses choose seafood that is fished or farmed in ways that support a healthy ocean. Through raising awareness, educating influencers, advancing policy, and creating partnerships, SeafoodWATCH is setting the sustainability bar for seafood.
