A deep dive into the sustainability of fish.

A decade ago, few understood the necessity of sustainability to secure a livable future. But now, as sustainability has become a common term to describe lifestyle choices across every industry, the bigger question is how to achieve it. From the products you buy to the choices you make, sustainability plays a part in all of it.

When it comes to the food you eat, sustainable practices are incredibly important. With 1/3 of food being wasted around the world each year, quantity and profit have taken precedence over quality and environmental impact. But does it have to be this way?

While current methods of commercial fishing are not typically sustainable, there is a way to feasibly eat sustainable fish in the future. This can be achieved by overhauling the current global fishing industry and refocusing fishing efforts to a more localized scale. By only catching what we actually eat, not disturbing natural ocean ecosystems, and fishing only in certain areas, we can revert to sustainable fishing.
