Protect leatherbacks, seabirds and marine mammals by sticking to sustainable seafood.
Next time you and your friends or family go out for sushi, avoid tuna caught on longlines or shrimp captured by bottom trawling. Instead, opt for "pole and line" caught tuna, shrimp from vessels using "turtle excluder devices", or fish or seafood from well-managed fisheries occupying lower trophic levels on the food web. If your server is unable to tell you how your fish was caught or uses vague terms like "line-caught" to describe items on the menu, you may want to reconsider your selections. Educate your friends and family, as well as the restaurants and supermarkets in your area!
