As we pause to think more deeply about fish and seafood, we must understand what realities we face and how simple our day to day choices can affect it. Sea life at all levels of the food chain are at risk. Worldwide demand for fish is increasing every year, with some of the most populous nations on the planet leading the fish-catching and consumption trends: China, Japan, and the United States. Our appetite for fish and seafood has left 90% of wild species depleted or exploited. Yet for all of this worry, there is good news. We simply need to be smarter about the way we use this resource. The oceans have an incredible way of rebounding when balanced fishery and aquaculture management is put into place.
