Sustainable Seafood Labeling Brings On Host Of Challenges

Posted by Robyn, February 23, 2013

Sustainable seafood has become a pretty common buzzword in the past several years, though if one actually tries to define the term, there are likely to be some discrepancies. NPR has released a great three-part series on some of the challenges that currently face the seafood industry, and why seeking sustainable seafood choices can be a lot more complicated than just downloading an iPhone app that tells you what to eat and what not to.

NPR surveyed 3,000 individuals to learn more about consumer thoughts on seafood labeling and discovered that 80 percent of Americans think it is “important” or “very important” that seafood was caught using sustainable methods. The survey defined the term “sustainable” as “still being plentiful for future generations, and caught using methods that did minimal harm to other animals in the sea.”
