SeaChoice is a completely independently funded sustainable sea food consumption advisory program designed to help retailers and consumers to make smart choices when purchasing seafood. Their economic independence means no added cost or beholding to producers, processors or retailers, and a free service for everyone involved with seafood from ship to plate. Listen as Kurtis Hayne, the Sustainable Seafood Market Analyst for SeaChoice, discusses how Canada is on the way to becoming 100% sustainable, but still has some serious heavy lifting ahead if we are going to get there before it’s too late for certain popular seafood choices that have yet to make it off of the “red” list of unsustainably harvested fish.
