The Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program provides comprehensive seafood sustainability recommendations useful for any U.S. seafood buyer. In addition, Seafood Watch provides resources for seafood retailers and restaurants including training materials, tools specific to the professional seafood buyer, consumer pocket guides (wallet cards that tell consumers what seafood is ranked in each of their color categories) and other point of purchase (POP) materials. Complete information about the program, including science-based, peer-reviewed reports on over 300 farmed and wild-caught seafood items, can be found on their website, www.SeafoodWatch.org
Seafood Watch developed a seafood ranking system and methodology that uses green for best choices, yellow for good alternatives and red for products to avoid. Many other NGOs use a ranking system that is based on the Seafood Watch methodology.
Seafood Watch recommendations are updated regularly and made available to the seafood industry as well as consumers on tools ranging from convenient pocket guides to comprehensive listings.
