I wanted to continue the strong discussion on sustainable seafood today with this article about sustainable seafood myths and the many different ways our environmental decisions impact the food we eat. It’s a different look at the situation and reminds us our decisions need to go beyond simply selecting food with stickers that tells us sustainable. The article makes this statement, “most imminent threat to our oceans: greenhouse-gas emissions. Even if every human planet miraculously decided to buy only seafood stamped with the Whole Foods seal of “sustainability,” marine species will still be doomed.”
The article moves on to offer ideas on how we can improve the situation including incorporating seafood’s carbon footprint into sustainability rating standards – and I encourage you to read it.
