Which fish?

Choosing sustainable seafood and making ethical choices can make shopping a daunting task. How are you meant to know which to choose? Several handy guides have been produced to help you quickly identify the more sustainable options. These are just a few:

National Geographic

The National Geographic has produced an interactive ‘Seafood Decision Guide’ which tells you about the species, and where it ranks in terms of sustainability, Omega-3 content and mercury level.

You can find it here: Seafood Decision Guide

Marine Conservation Society

The Marine Conservation Society ‘Good Fish Guide’ is an easy to read, colour-coded guide which also comes as an app – perfect for quick reference whilst shopping.

Here it is: MCS Pocket Guide

Also check out the Good Fish Guide App on the App Store!

World Wildlife Fund

As this is clearly a global issue, WWF have produced guides for different countries, in different languages.
