I went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium today and noticed this campaign they've got going called Seafood Watch. Basically the concern is that fishing has become a ridiculous business, and that there are ways to help prevent needless casualties. Below is a link to their campaign. Thought I'd share it with you :)

Part of my old stomping grounds -- well before the aquarium was ever built though.

Yes, overfishing and 'fad' fishing -- between that and dumping our garbage in the ocean (because folks don't like to live next to a stinky landfill) -- it is surprising we have not already killed off all sea life.

Sometimes I'm wondering that people still prefer to be blind and don't see and hear the obvious. I mean, this topic is not anymore new and every responsible human who cares at least a bit for our world and one's surrounding should know and understand this problem.

I like fish and therefore I like to buy it but since a couple of years I do my best to buy only those which show a stamp of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) or says that they come from a biological resource. In addition I do carry a leaflet from WWF in my wallet which holds the same information as the one which can be found on the Seafood Watch site.

Interestingly, MSC might not even be the ideal. It's a medium even by Seafood Watch Standards. I stumbled across this when looking at clams (I don't eat shellfish, but I went fish exploring on the site) www.seafoodwatch.org/seafood-recommendations/detail/434/clams-wild-marine-stewardship-council-certified-fisheries-marine-stewardship-council-certified?q=Clams

Many thanks, Setanaoko, for this information. I somehow thought that the standard of MSC and Seafood Watch would be one and the same. So, thanks for making me aware of that they are not.
