Summary

There are increasing concerns about the sustainability of the seafood we consume and about the environmental impact of fisheries, as attested by the growing popularity of initiatives such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium's and similar wallet cards, and the fisheries certification scheme run by the Marine Stewardship Council.
