There’s A Limit To The Number of Fish In The Sea
Ocean fish are wildlife – the last such creatures that we hunt on a large scale. And while the sheer size of the oceans is awesome, there are many signs that we have found their limits. The Zoo’s goal is to raise awareness about the importance of buying seafood from sustainable sources to ensure a future with abundant ocean wildlife. Nearly 75% of the world’s fisheries are either fully fished or over fished. Sustainable sources are those that can exist over the long-term without compromising species survival or the health of the surrounding ecosystem. Seafood Watch (a program of the Monterey Bay Aquarium) and Ocean Wise are programs supported by the Toronto Zoo that educate how, through better practices, we can create healthy, abundant oceans for everyone! But there is still much to be done. Click here to download the Seafood Watch sustainable seafood guide outlining ‘best, good and avoid’ options.
