Sustainable fishing is catching wild-caught fish in a way that doesn’t lead to over fishing. It doesn’t harm other species or damage our precious marine environment. Can you imagine if the next generations couldn’t enjoy tuna if they wanted to because we’ve fished them out of existence? It’s not that farfetched.
Sustainable fishing is the equipment we use (no FADs, no dragnets). It’s about when we fish (not during breeding season), where we fish (not in low population areas) and what species of fish we catch. Sustainable fishing is making sure we don’t harm other species in our marine environment and cause huge wastage through bye catch. But that’s not all. Sustainable fishing is about the people. The local fishing communities that rely on the oceans for their livelihood and about the land ingredients we use. Land, sea and people. That’s true sustainable fishing!
