Sustainable seafood matters

The SEA LIFE Trust is a conservation charity working to put an end to overfishing and destructive fishing methods and to help people make sustainable choices when buying seafood.

 

Fishing is an ancient practice that dates back over many tens of thousands of years, human existence and culture around the world are tied into our fishing history. 

 

 

The oceans offer us a renewable and irreplaceable source of food and nutrition on which some communities rely for survival. 

 

However over the last century, commercial fishing methods have increased our impact on the marine environment and species so dramatically that we are now in danger of causing marine ecosystems to collapse completely.
